The MBA Careers Office works with students to refine their career aspirations.
The office organizes various workshops which give students a clear edge in the market, helping them fine tune their job search strategies.

These workshops typically incorporate the entire gamut of the search, application and recruitment processes, with career coaches and counselors helping candidates define their career paths more clearly, whilst providing guidance on everything from CV tips, interview skills, cover letter best practices to compensation negotiation.

Our 2016 MBA Impact study showed that 92% of the MBAs were employed withing 12 months of the programme.

​Companies that have participated in our career fairs include:

The Careers Office of Lagos Business School is glad to launch an International Placement Portal. This is in partnership with EFMD Global Network and offers an international job and internship placement search engine.

Please Log In​​ to access the International Placement Portal.

The internship period consists of 10 to12 weeks (between July and September) of supervised work in industry during which students carry out a clearly defined project. Its aim is to help the students develop their managerial and working skills and gain knowledge in their particular field of interest. At the end of the internship period each student prepares a report on his or her experience and the learning achieved.

The internship is also an opportunity for the organisation students work with to evaluate a possible hire. Some of our students are retained by their internship host  organisations.

The MBA Careers Office partners with your organisation to identify participants who fit your requirements. You can write to or call the career office in order to set up appointments to hold preliminary needs analysis meetings; to arrange for an on-campus recruitment session; or to signify an interest in participating in the Lagos Business School MBA career fair.

Meeting the MBA participants

There are opportunities to meet the MBA participants one-on-one, either by sponsoring a cocktail or lunch or by making a presentation to the participants. This enables the company to know more about the participants and spot their future employees among them.

These events could take the following forms:
  • MBA Career Fair
  • Company Presentations
  • Networking Forums
  • Promoting your company

There are various ways in which companies could promote their organisation and increase their attractiveness to potential hires. The following are some examples:

The career office organises mock interviews during the programme for students to practice interviewing skills. This is an opportunity also for company managers to project their organisations as employers of choice by participating in the mock interviews as interviewers

There are currently two students clubs: Finance Club and SMELogic. The Finance Club meets regularly and publishes a periodic Finance Digest. SMELogic works with the Enterprise Development Services Unit (EDS) of the University, to provide business advisory services to small and medium enterprises and help them grow their businesses.

Companies may sponsor football matches between their teams and the MBA participants’ teams. Such events foster relationships between the players and serve to highlight the participants’ soft skills.

Companies have the possibility of asking our MBAs to partner with them in their charity drives or promoting other corporate social responsibility initiatives.
