Professor Ogbechie is the Dean of Lagos Business School. He has been a member of LBS Management Board since March 2012 and has been associated with the school for over 20 years.
I am honoured to serve at Lagos Business School as its fourth Dean.
Lagos Business School is a leading institution in Africa with a mission to be widely recognised as the business school with the greatest impact on knowledge and practice of management in Africa. In the last 29 years, we have consolidated our teaching, research and engagements to develop responsible leaders who will proffer lasting solutions to Africa’s business, economic, social, and institutional challenges.
The quality of our education has attracted continued recognition from global ranking bodies such as The Financial Times of London, which has ranked our Executive Education programme for 13 consecutive years. In 2020, Our Executive MBA was the only one in Africa to be ranked by The Economist Magazine and we were recognised by Corporate Knights as one of the top 40 business schools in the world to integrate sustainability knowledge and skills into the education we offer.
I extend unreserved gratitude to every member of faculty and staff who work tirelessly to ensure the School delivers on its promise and remains relevant. I am also especially proud of our growing Alumni community who represent our interest in different parts of the world and carry on the learnings received from us to impact their diverse industries.
As we begin the journey of another year in the middle of a lingering pandemic, we are renewing our commitment to delivering quality education, that is not only adapted to the current needs of the global business landscape but stresses professional ethics and service to the community. We will continue to maximise digital technology in the delivery of our programmes and expand our reach to attract students and faculty from across the world.
I wish you a happy new year and welcome you to Lagos Business School.
