Lagos Business School has now become the first and only school in Africa to feature on CEO Magazine’s Global MBA rankings. According to the list published today, LBS’ full-time MBA and Executive MBA programmes have been recognised as Tier One Programmes.
CEO Magazine has been showcasing top business schools around the world since 2008 with the purpose of identifying schools which marry exceptional quality with great ROI. The schools under review are ranked based on factors such as quality of faculty, class size, accreditation, faculty to student ratio, delivery methods among others.
Out of the 270 programmes from business schools recognised by the rankings, Lagos Business School ranked 70th while its EMBA programme equally took the 70th position on the Global EMBA ranking.
LBS’ MBA Director, Dr Uchenna Uzo speaking on the latest achievement said, “Lagos Business School’s presence on the CEO Magazine Global MBA ranking further confirms our commitment to the transference of excellent business and management education, especially as it relates to Africa”.
Uzo added that, despite this significant milestone, the School will not rest on its oars but will continue to ensure that it transcends expectations and maintains its position as a leading business school in the African continent.
Other prestigious schools featured in the rankings alongside Lagos Business School are IE Business School, Leeds University Business School and EU Business School.
Lagos Business School has also been ranked for 11 consecutive years among the top business schools in open enrolment executive education and for two years in the custom executive education by the Financial Times, London.
