Twenty-eight delegates from Duke Corporate Education were recently at Lagos Business School as part of a weeklong study tour.
The delegates – comprising Standard Bank executives drawn from seven countries across Africa – had a session on ‘Growing the Retail Business’ with LBS faculty Dr Doyin Salami to sensitise them on customer centricity, the value chain and new markets.
In line with the immersive programme, the team visited leading Nigerian companies such as MTN, Nigeria Breweries, Unilever and Stanbic IBTC, among others.
Karen Roux, Managing Director, Duke Corporate Education, said LBS had surpassed the team’s expectations with its insightful sessions and standard learning facilities. “The School’s facilities are wonderful, the faculty sessions we’ve had have been top-class. In a word, it’s been a positive experience for all our delegates,” she enthused.
“The tour has given us a more in-depth understanding of the complexities around operating in a market like Nigeria,” said Nicholas Nkosi, one of the Standard Bank executives on the team. “This is my second time in Nigeria, and I must say LBS remains a great institution with amazing lecturers.”
Ranked by the Financial Times in custom executive education for the 11th year in a row, Duke Corporate Education prepares leaders to face new challenges, solve complex business issues and shape a brighter future for their organisations.
