Lagos Business School’s Executive Education programmes have been ranked among the best in the world for the 13th consecutive year by the Financial Times (FT).
The FT Executive Education Rankings 2019 which was published on Monday, June 3, 2019, recognised Lagos Business School’s open enrolment and custom executive education programmes based on ratings provided by participants and clients, and assessments of faculty, facilities among others.
In Custom education, LBS moved 16 positions to become 48 in the world and second in Africa after Gordon Institute of Business Science, South Africa which holds the 45th position. The schools were ranked for the level of interaction between clients and school, willingness of schools to complement their faculty with external experts, relevance of skills gained to the workplace and more.
LBS has now also become the second in Africa on the Open Enrolment table where it holds the 73rd position in the world alongside top business schools such as IMD Business School, Switzerland; IESE Business School, Spain; and Stanford Graduate School of Business, United States.
Responding to the latest achievement, LBS Dean, Professor Enase Okonedo said, “We are delighted that our efforts in impacting the practice of management in Africa and addressing the unique needs of our customers have not gone unnoticed. Our commitment towards our mission of developing responsible leaders for Africa and the world is unwavering, and this recognition by the Financial Times reignites our drive”.
LBS is also the only business school in Africa to appear on the CEO Magazine annual global MBA ranking for two years in a row.
LBS custom and open enrolment programmes both offer fresh perspectives on challenging business issues and tailor bespoke interventions to develop a meaningful experience for participants.
