Lagos Business School has signed a comprehensive Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Strathmore Business School, Kenya which will not only foster stronger academic ties between both institutions but also economic and cultural exchanges.
The MoU, which is effective from 4 September 2014, will be valid for 6 years.
With the partnership, both schools will have faculty and student exchange programmes, joint organisation of research/workshops and publications, curriculum development in management education, online learning development projects as well as short-term academic programmes/ executive education.
Going forward, LBS and Strathmore Business School will also collaborate with public and private agencies, foundations, multilateral organisations and their governments to develop projects that will drive sustainable development in their respective communities.
LBS collaborates with some of the world’s leading business schools and associations in line with its efforts to remain a bastion of management education on the continent. Last week, the School signed an MoU with Nanyang Business School, Singapore to boost the relevance of its academic/executive programmes and faculty capacity.
Other schools and associations that the School is partnering include: IESE Business School, Barcelona; the Global Business Schools Network (GBSN), Association of African Business Schools (AABS) and the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, among others.
