About 132 erstwhile students of Lagos Business School bagged varying postgraduate degrees at the Pan-Atlantic University’s 11th convocation ceremony, held at the School’s Honeywell Auditorium recently.
Sixty-five of the graduands were drawn from the School’s MBA programme (MBA 11), 64 from its Executive MBA (EMBA 17), two bagged a master’s in Philosophy, while one was awarded a PhD at the ceremony which attracted high-profile academics and captains of industry across sectors.
Chairman, Visual Art Society of Nigeria Mr Sammy Olagbaju, who gave the keynote speech, sensitised the graduands on the importance of the arts and effective communication, urging them to apply same in their respective careers. He was joined by Pro Chancellor, Dr Christopher Kolade, who went to great lengths to highlight the challenges they would face applying their knowledge and skills in the outside world and tips on how to overcome same.
The Dean, LBS, Dr Enase Okonedo, was on hand to confer degrees on some of the graduands. Subsequently, each class, including graduands from the School of Media and Communications, Pan-Atlantic University, took turns sharing their experiences as students while making donations/pledges to move the University forward. They were also inducted into the School’s prestigious alumni association, and are henceforth entitled to all the privileges attached to membership.
