From June 2 – 3, Lagos Business School (LBS) will host the seventh edition of its Young Talents Programme (YTP), which will engage the country’s brightest graduates. YTP is designed to mentor young leaders in a world-class institution and enroll qualified candidates into the LBS Management Scholarship Academy, a two-year career development programme that will prepare them for doctoral degrees.

The scholarship-based programme includes career, leadership, and entrepreneurship seminars, action learning projects, mentorship sessions led by LBS faculty and networking sessions with industry experts and YTP alumni.

LBS will share its culture and values during YTP, and participants will be able to explore how they can make immediate impact at LBS, Nigeria, and the world.
