Fifty-two participants, comprising corps members and new graduates, are currently being equipped with skills that would prepare them for a career in management at this year’s edition of the Venture in Management Programme (ViMP).
ViMP, a yearly event organised by Lagos Business School and Junior Achievement Nigeria (JAN), is a one-week intensive session designed to introduce select corps members and graduates to the responsibilities, opportunities and demands of a career in management. As such, the programme includes stimulating classroom meetings and case studies, culminating in a strategy workshop during which participants present solutions to real-world business scenarios.
The MBA Marketing Manager, Ifeanyi Ajaebili, commented on this year’s programme. “This years’ ViMP is the most competitive in the history of the programme. This shows that Lagos Business School and Junior Achievements Nigeria are making substantial impact in developing entrepreneurial skills and management competence among young graduates in Nigeria. People appreciate and expect quality management education from LBS which is what we are known for. Though the event is totally free, we have corps members who want to pay to participate. The 2016 participants acknowledge the quality of LBS faculty, facilities and professionalism in programme delivery. Most of them echo that the experience has been a life-changing for them” he said.
The free one-week programme is scheduled to end tomorrow, Friday, March 11, 2016. LBS remains committed to developing responsible leaders for Africa and the world.
