The spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) across countries of the world has resulted in nearly 7 million cases in 213 countries and has increasingly become a cause for global concern. We have recorded over 11,000 cases and 354 deaths here in Nigeria; safety is of utmost priority thus I am providing details on the measures Lagos Business School (LBS) is taking to ensure our staff and students are safe. Staff have been provided with virtual tools to enable remote work if the need arises and to sustain team connectivity despite the distance.
For our MBA programmes, we have temporarily suspended face-to-face classes and have moved current modules to our online platform. All events within LBS that involve incoming visitors, visiting professors and external partners from World Health Organisation listed hotspot countries have been postponed until further notice. Staff have been provided with virtual tools to enable remote work if the need arises and to sustain team connectivity despite the distance.
