CEOs charged to embrace action learning to transform organisations
…As BSN produces 74 Nigerian MBA graduates
Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Business School Netherlands (BSN) in Nigeria, Mr. Lere Baale has challenged CEOs in the country to embrace “Action Learning Methodology” saying it has the capacity to transform their organisational affairs.
He gave the charge while announcing the school’s plan to graduate 74 MBA students of the school in Scheveningen, The Netherlands. Baale explained that the graduating students have undergone programmes that fortified their mind to adopt action-oriented solutions through BSN’s proprietary “action learning”, a scientific learning methodology, which enabled them to experience direct impact of what they learnt on themselves, their work, organisations and future.
He added that if CEOs will adopt same learning methodology, it would positively alter their way of operation and existence. “Today’s CEOs face onerous internal vulnerabilities and external challenges in an economy fraught with puzzling and chaotic conditions. This is why BSN is launching a Special MBA for CEOs as a unique proposition designed to help CEO’s achieve company-wide transformation while equipping them with tough skills to ride the waves of changing economic climate, and achieve sustainable leadership in their respective industries.”
He said a statement released from the school revealed “that 11 Nigerians scored distinctions (including one Cum Laude) in their final dissertations in the Executive MBA programme, while two Nigerians also achieved overall distinctions.” They will be celebrated at the graduation scheduled for this Saturday, October 7, 2017 in The Netherlands.
Asserting that BSN’s unique teaching and learning methods have earned the school accolades across the world and endeared it to students, graduates and employers worldwide and particularly in Nigeria, Baale enjoined Nigerian CEOs and managers desirous of internationally acknowledged MBA certificates “to save themselves the financial stress and mental rigour of funding and procuring international travelling documents and take advantage of the BSN’s presence in Nigeria and its Special MBA for CEOs to fulfill their ambitions.”
He further explained, “the BSN MBA is awarded centrally in the Netherlands. The over 488 people that have earned the BSN’s MBA through the Nigerian outreach have had to satisfy the requirements of the parent institution.” The certificate awarding ceremonies are also held in the Netherlands to further cement the international status of BSN.
“The intent of BSN action learning is to contribute to higher education in management learning and facilitate the development of African CEOs and managers’ skills, knowledge, research capabilities and ability to take action with regards to the problems, prospects and challenges facing their own organisations.
