Lagos Business School exposes graduates to investment opportunities in Nigeria
Various ways of exposing business executives to investment opportunities in Nigeria were the focus of the international executive Masters in Business Administration (MBA) week of the Lagos Business School (LBS).
The programme, which had the theme ‘Playing to Win in Africa: Exploring Business Opportunities in Nigeria’, is a cultural immersion programme to expose the students and alumni from global partner institutions to the values and business environment in Nigeria and Africa while building their personal and business thinking agility through immersive experiences.
Professor of Strategy, LBS, Chris Ogbechie, in his welcome speech described the executive MBA week as an excellent initiative as it provides a rare opportunity for business schools in Africa to collaborate.
According to him, Africa’s narrative is changing, and soon, the continent will become the epicentre of urbanisation in the world.He said the time has come for countries to take advantage of this encouraging trend by boosting intra-Africa trade, accelerating integration by jointly building regional infrastructure and equally building responsible businesses.
During the one-week programme, participants were required to use the knowledge gained during the programme to develop an action plan for investing in any of the identified growing markets, where a group that developed a solution to the second goal of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (Zero Hunger) emerged winner.
The programme helped to prepare participants for greater business opportunities, enabling them to manage business across borders and to face higher leadership responsibilities. The international executive MBA week programme was built around strategies for managing a business in a complex or turbulent environment; using innovation to cope with uncertainty.
