Our research community at Lagos Business School (LBS) incorporates academics, students, alumni, corporate and government partners, as well as other universities and research institutions in Nigeria, Africa and around the world.

Many of our faculty members hold impressive academic credentials and strong industry background, including advisors to government, regulators, and business. They are editors of influential journals, visiting professors in leading business schools, members and fellows of professional bodies and well-recognised authors. Their research enjoys peer recognition, is published in top academic journals, fosters corporate and community engagement and supports teaching and public discourse.

We have an extensive network with leading global universities, public agencies, governments and businesses – across Nigeria, Africa and internationally.
