Lagos Business School (LBS) has maintained its ranking on the Financial Times list of top global institutions in open enrolment and custom executive education, thereby, living up to its reputation as a leading provider of management and business education on the continent.
The School has been ranked amongst the top open enrolment executive education providers for the tenth consecutive year since 2007 and remains the only business school in West Africa to achieve this feat. In the FT Executive Education 2016 ranking published today, LBS was placed 1st in West Africa, 3rd in Africa and 64th globally, in the open enrolment executive education category. The School also made the list of reputable custom executive education providers a second time; climbing 4 places from last year's position to attain the 75th spot.
Dean of LBS, Dr Enase Okonedo said the school is pleased with the ranking by the Financial Times, as it is the pre-eminent international executive education ranking. "As we celebrate 25 years of developing responsible leaders, we will continue to strive for excellence. We are pleased with the FT ranking which further attests to our strength and relevance in the business and management education landscape in Nigeria and Africa", she said.
"The School's ranking is significant, given that it is the only business school in the West African sub-region to be ranked amongst prominent global counterparts in this year's FT ranking for open enrolment and custom education providers", she added.
On a yearly basis, the Financial Times of London publishes a list of the best management programmes from business schools around the world. Its ranking is based on the quality of learning, staff and student diversity, growth in business and international reach of renowned business schools.
