Lagos Business School (LBS) has enriched its bouquet of programmes to continue to address the developmental needs of business executives at various cadres of the organisation with the introduction of two new programmes – the Management Acceleration Programme (MAP) and the Agri-business Management Programme (AgMP).
At LBS, our focus is on developing leaders for Africa and the world. In these interesting and challenging times of economic development in Africa, it is critical that young professionals are developed to excel in Nigeria as well as other developing economies. The MAP has been borne out of this reason. The programme, which kicks off on May 11 this year, is designed for early career high-performing functional experts who are about, or have recently begun to manage people.
The programme will equip participants with perspectives and skills to work effectively across various functions, broaden business expertise and strengthen competence in key functional disciplines. It will also deepen their ability to lead and follow mindfully as well as enhance performance readiness to fast-track careers. The MAP curriculum will cover two broad themes delivered in two distinct modules: Developing Leadership Competencies and Advancing Business Acumen.
In response to the growing need for a National Agricultural Revolution especially in the face of the Global oil glut, the School has upgraded its AgMP and now runs it as an executive programme, effective 2016. Upon successful completion, participants now become members of the prestigious LBS Alumni Association.
The programme aims at exposing agro-industry entrepreneurs, agribusiness sector managers in financial institutions, project executives and value chain players to current global, regional and domestic trends and market realities in the agricultural sector. The AgMP is an innovative and stimulating learning experience that integrates classroom knowledge and theory with action learning. The programme runs in three modules of five days each spread over five months, with field trips in between. The 2016 programme starts on April 11.
