In line with its 2019 strategic objectives to increase engagement with global business schools and integrate international dimensions into its teachings, Lagos Business School (LBS) has entered into a partnership with NEOMA Business School, France.
The purpose of the agreement is to “establish specific educational relations and cooperation between both institutions in order to promote academic linkages and enrich the understanding of different cultures”.
Under the partnership, both institutions will organise student and faculty exchanges to facilitate collaborative learning and research, and other educational developments. This is in furtherance of LBS’ international student exchange programme that allows its students to broaden their global outlook and build a business network outside the country.
“Our strategic intent for the year is to establish meaningful and mutually beneficial partnerships with international business schools whose goals align with ours. We want to improve the learning experience for our students, open our faculty up to unexplored areas of research and equally develop a better immersion experience for inbound students. This partnership with NEOMA is a step towards the achievement of these goals”, says LBS Dean, Professor Enase Okonedo.
NEOMA is a triple-accredited and highly ranked business school with three campuses – Reims, Rouen and Paris – in France. It joins LBS’ list of top business school partners including IESE Business School, Spain; IESEG School of Management, France; Yale School of Management; and University of Stellenbosch Business School, South Africa.
