The Lagos Business School MBA programme
has been restructured in line with global best practice whilst still
maintaining strong emphasis on professionalism and high ethical
standards. The focus over the years has been to develop responsible
leaders for Africa starting from Nigeria. The new MBA will incorporate
other nations from the continent. In order to meet the growing demand
for competent and quality graduates globally, this new MBA has
incorporated the following changes:
- Three years minimum work experience will now be mandatory for new intakes starting from September 2015
programme length has been reduced from 21 months to 18 months. To
successfully complete the MBA programme, 15 months of in class study and
at least 72 credit hours of course work is required. There will be
three semesters in all; two semesters in the first academic year, one
semester in the final year. The last semester is an elective semester
and students can choose to participate in a student exchange program
with our partner schools abroad or offer electives locally.
- An Action Learning project must be completed by participants. Groups
of students will be required to review the operations of a selected
small and medium enterprise (SME) and help design what will take the
firm to the next level.
- The new MBA will focus on some salient skills including critical thinking, leadership, and innovation. These skills will be taught in several leadership seminars during the first and second semester of the first year.
- New elective courses have been introduced. See the new curriculum table for more details
