Executive MBA at Lagos Business School.

The EMBA programme gives you the best preparation for an entrepreneurial or management career in Africa and the world. The programme is meant for those managers who desire to learn and simultaneously apply best practices in management to deal with challenges in the workplace.

Learning at LBS is collaborative as participants work within groups, sharing responsibilities and learning from each other’s experience. The case study method is the main pedagogical tool used at LBS, thus exposing you in a practical way to the challenges faced by managers in different industries.

The Executive MBA international immersion trips with leading business schools in Europe, America, Africa and Asia, allows you to learn the nuances of other markets. The programme also allows you to build a solid business network. Learn more about LBS special partnership with Yale School of Management, United States.

Learning Objectives

Our aim is to create an environment where participants can learn how to handle difficult real-life problems by probing, discussing and working together as a team towards achieving a deeper insight than they can ever do on their own. The EMBA amplifies individual strengths and builds synergies between team members. You learn how to exercise judgment, make better decisions and take responsibility. In doing this, you also discover how to communicate effectively in class and at work, and leverage on all the excellent ideas you get on the programme. The EMBA is best for people in full-time employment in positions that allow them apply what they learn while they complete a rigorous academic programme. The exposure is beyond work, it is a well rounded experience that gives participants a balanced view of life.

Participants are expected to bring in real life challenges faced within their organisations for robust discussions in class, and at the end of every course submit action plans on strategies to adopt.
