Journalist, poet and social media enthusiast, Tolu Ogunlesi, has described Lagos Business School’s MBA programme as the best pick for managers looking for locally relevant management education with a global outlook.
Ogunlesi, who was part of a team selected to participate in the Bloomberg Media Initiative for finance journalists held in LBS recently, has two brothers who are alumni of the prestigious institution. “LBS is the clear leader in Nigeria in terms of an MBA that offers globally relevant local content,” he emphasised.
The prolific writer also disclosed that following LBS’ recent ranking among top global business schools by the Financial Times of London, he was commissioned to write a piece that would identify the school’s distinctiveness for participants.
“I interviewed one of the alumni who had done several executive management programmes in LBS, and he admitted that the school was the reference point for executives looking to work or do business in Nigeria with their MBA,” he said.
For Ogunlesi, whose first LBS experience dates back to 2006, solid networking is another distinctive quality that can be ascribed to the institution. “At the end of the day, we are the sum of our networks because whatever success we record is determined by the network we have,” he said. “The solid networking that LBS provides ranks first for me, then sound knowledge and the right attitude.”
