About

Lagos Business School

Lagos is the biggest city in Africa and one of the fastest growing cities in the world, having mushroomed in population from 762,000 in 1960 to an estimated 13.9 million today. Such an explosive increase is leading to an expanded Nigerian economy, which is already the largest in Africa. However, population growth is currently outstripping economic growth, leading to a slow rise in poverty levels. Therefore studying at a school focused on creating ethical and responsible leaders is a unique opportunity to contribute to the country’s economic power and go some way towards reversing this trend.

 

Though it has long been seen as one of Africa’s premier business schools, Lagos Business School (LBS) is now starting to achieve recognition on a global stage. In 2020 the school became the first in Africa to appear in The Economist Executive MBA Ranking, whilst its executive education programs have been mainstays in the Financial Times global ranking for over a decade. And it’s easy to see why. Their MBA programs have been designed from an African perspective with a global outlook, combining a wide-ranging curriculum with ample internship or exchange opportunities in Nigeria and beyond.

 

The MBA program at LBS comes in two different formats: traditional or modular. Whilst the traditional MBA is studied over the course of 15 months at the school’s Lagos campus, the Modular MBA combines online classes with eight separate weeks of intensive on-campus study throughout the two-year program. The acclaimed Executive MBA program has similar study formats, with students given the opportunity to study for an MBA without leaving their current job. All of these study options share the same four overall learning objectives: Knowledge of the Main Business Disciplines, Problem Solving Capabilities, Analytical Competence and Ethical Standards. They are the cornerstones which underpin the LBS MBA programs and illustrate why the school has achieved such a lofty global reputation.

What is the HBS Case Method?

Pioneered by HBS faculty and one of the highlights of the HBS experience, the case method presents big challenges confronting organizations – including the constraints and incomplete information found in all real world situations –and places you in the role of decision maker. No simple solutions exist – yet through the process of exchanging diverse perspectives, countering and defending ideas, and building on each other’s thoughts, you become adept at analyzing issues, exercising judgment, and making difficult decisions. We believe the case method is the best way to prepare students for the challenges of leadership.
