Achieves Custom Education ranking.
Lagos Business School has maintained its ranking on the Financial Times of London’s list of global front-liners in open enrolment education, living up to its reputation as a leading provider of management and business education on the continent and beyond.
In the FT’s Executive Education 2015 ranking published today in London, LBS placed 59th globally and third in Africa in the open enrolment executive education category, achieving the much coveted ranking for the ninth consecutive year since 2007.
LBS also made the FT’s list of reputable custom education providers for the first time, where it clinched the 79th spot, the only business school in West Africa to achieve the feat.
Commenting on this development, Dr Enase Okonedo, Dean, LBS, said the School’s ranking was significant, given that it was the only business school in the West African sub region to join its prominent global counterparts in this year’s FT ranking for open enrolment and custom education providers.
In this year’s ranking, IMD Business School, Switzerland maintained its top position on the list, followed by IESE Business School, Spain and Harvard Business School, USA, among others. The University of Pretoria’s Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS), USB Executive Development and Wits Business School – all based in South Africa- were the other African business schools ranked alongside LBS this year.
On a yearly basis, the Financial Times of London publishes a list of the best management programmes from business schools around the world. Its ranking is based on the quality of learning, staff and student diversity, growth in business and international reach of renowned business schools.
