Participants in the 26th edition of Lagos Business School’s Advanced Management Programme (AMP 26) successfully wrapped up the course with a farewell cocktail.
Known for their networking abilities, the class comprised the management teams of large organisations across sectors. Their curriculum was built on over 130 international and local real-life cases, which afforded them the opportunity to have an integrated view of business.
Davidson Regha, a returning student who doubles as Group Head, Retail Banking, Heritage Bank, scored the programme high on originality, content and application. “It’s given me the opportunity to challenge the prejudices I’ve built over time regarding management. I can safely say I now know what it takes to manage an organisation effectively,” he said.
LBS is not exactly new to Joseph Adeyeye, Controller Publications, Punch Newspapers. He heard a lot about the School before joining the programme, but admitted that his expectations were met and even surpassed: “For me, one of the key attractions of LBS is the high level of professionalism. We’re in a country where people rarely walk the talk, but LBS has been different. I’m impressed with the level of interaction and engagement between the students and faculty,” he said.
“Most of the case studies were home-grown, giving me a firm grasp of the economic dynamics in Nigeria,” quipped Chidubem Obiodu, EHS Manager, Oando Marketing Plc. “I can’t wait to go back going to my organisation to apply what I’ve learnt so far.”
For Thelma Opara, Programme Co-ordinator, AMP 26 is a class that will be sorely missed. She pinpointed their passion for learning and networking as two rare qualities that would stand them in good stead as they get down to the business of management in their respective organisations.
