High-level executives drawn from key sectors of the nation’s economy commenced the 27th edition of the Advanced Management Programme (AMP 27) at Lagos Business School yesterday.
The new batch of AMP participants toured LBS’ facilities, had introductory modules and were treated to a welcome cocktail afterwards to foster networking opportunities.
The AMP typically runs for four months, and is meant for executive directors and executive management teams of large organisations. With a curriculum built on over 130 international and local real-life cases, it offers participants the opportunity to take a holistic and integrated view of business.
“LBS has all it takes to deliver on my expectations,” said Jude Anele, Head, Direct Banking, Diamond Bank plc, who returned to LBS for the programme eleven years after he graduated from the School’s Executive MBA programme (EMBA 8).
He observed improvements in the curriculum, as well as the quality of facilitators with international exposure and affiliations: “The mode of delivery has changed, the blend of new and old faculty gives you a sense that the LBS culture still exists and is growing,” he added.
Florence Etta-Akin Aina of the TY Danjuma Foundation commended the level of attention to detail and timeliness she experienced as a first-time participant in the School’s programmes. “My boss recommended the programme, and I think it has started out pretty well. I’m quite excited and very impressed with the quality of the AMP,” she said.
Participants in the new batch are drawn from oil and gas, financial services, banking, hospitality and banking, among other sectors of the economy.
