​Management Acceleration Programme 

To gain a competitive advantage in today's talent-driven economy, organisations must build sustainable talent pipelines. They need to invest as much effort and resources in developing their early-career high potential talent into tomorrow's leaders. This is critical, as the future success of the 21st-century organisation depends on its ability to develop these promising professionals to handle the various challenges associated with navigating the increasingly complex organisational and market terrain in a rapidly evolving global context of organizations.

While the programme design draws from LBS' experience in creating transformational educational experiences for high potential managers over the last two decades, as well as practical insights from skilled talent managers, it is to be particularly relevant to the new and upcoming generation of future leaders. It is designed to enhance emerging leaders' performance readiness, fast-track their careers and accelerate their impact on their organisations.

Participants will have the unique benefit of gaining useful business perspectives through a one-on-one interaction with a multidisciplinary team of faculty that have had real-life experience at senior levels in multinational organisations. Also, participants will have the unique opportunity of developing and presenting a capstone project before a panel of industry experts

  • Become competent and confident managers. Using research insights provided by a team of world-class faculty, participants would be enabled to address real challenges their organisations face in a volatile and uncertain environment thereby building resilience to sustain a stable future.

  • The MAP of the Lagos Business School is one of the best training programmes attended by me and it is rich in content and had been impactful in my life. I surely recommend this LBS training to other professional colleagues.

  • The MAP was quite enlightening and thought-provoking. I realized the meaning and import of saying "Attitude determines altitude". My actions have a great effect on the kind of reactions I receive from others and vice versa.
