Lagos Business School has recorded several success stories in international circles of recent, maintaining its position as the bastion of management education on the continent.
In September, the research findings of four of the School’s faculty were featured in the Routledge Companion to Business in Africa. Thanks to the LBS culture of intensive research, Drs Chris Ogbechie, Ifedapo Adeleye, Yetunde Anibaba and Kenneth Amaeshi (visiting faculty) displayed their expertise in strategy, management and business respectively.
Edited by Professors Sonny Nwankwo and Kenneth Ibeh, the compendium is a reference resource that showcases Africa from a business perspective. The topics explored by LBS faculty were: Intra-African Regional Expansion: Rhetoric, Reality and Risks (Franklin Ngwu, Adeleye and Ogbechie), Strategic Human Resources Management, Labour Market Efficiency and Competitiveness in Africa: Contemporary Issues and Prospects for the Future (Adeleye and Anibaba) and Corporate Social Responsibility and Employee Relations in Africa: Evidence from the Nigerian Banking Sector (Amaeshi, Adeleye and Olufemi Amao).
Meanwhile, LBS is not resting on its laurels. Earlier this month, the research work of Organisational Behaviour expert, Dr Constantine Tongo, bagged the ‘Best Paper Award’ at the 2014 Conference Programme of the Institute of Behavioural and Applied Management (IBAM 22) held in the United States.
Dr Tongo’s paper, tagged Organisational Behaviour, Theory and Development: Cognitively Based Motivational Principles for Knowledge Sharing and Protection in Organisations critically explores how Knowledge-Based Organisations (KBOs) share and protect knowledge through Collective Work Motivation (CWM).
