For participants in the 27th run of Lagos Business School’s Advanced Management Programme (AMP 27), ethics and solid networking are two major takeaways they will not lose sight of in a hurry.
The 34 high-level executives drawn from finance, IT, construction, advertising and real estate, among others, developed a visibly strong bond in the course of the programme. They were taught the importance of business ethics, which they assured they would practise as they return to the real world full-time.
The AMP is for executive directors and members of executive management teams of large organisations. Participants in the AMP typically are in positions in which it no longer suffices to be highly performing specialists, but are charged with integrating the work of their departments with others’.
Speaking at a farewell cocktail organised in LBS to mark the end of the programme recently, Tunji Adeniran, Executive Director, Metrowest Limited (part of the Oasis Group) said: “My expectations have been met and modestly exceeded. The blend of facilitators’ industry experience and research has been wonderful. AMP 27 has more or less become a family built on ethics.”
Grace Omolori Okoya of Slava-Yeditere Construction could not contain her elation. She said: The level of ethics espoused in LBS resonates with me. Based on my experience here, I’ve made a decision that my son will be educated in Pan-Atlantic University. As far as I’m concerned, LBS can compete with any reputable institution in terms of standards.”
For Sunkanmi Adenuga, the Programme Manager, the number of business partnerships fostered among participants during the programme speaks volumes about their responsiveness to learning. “The feedback from faculty is that they have been very participatory and involved in the programme,” he said.
