Lagos Business School (LBS) has become the only business school in Africa to be featured on The Economist 2020 Executive MBA Ranking.

The Economist’s Executive MBA ranking is a bi-annual list of the best providers of the Executive MBA programme across the world categorised based on two broad measures: personal development/educational experience and career development.

The LBS Modular Executive MBA was ranked based on the quality of students, student and faculty diversity, quality of faculty, programme quality, career progression, salary and networking. The programme holds the 2nd position in the world in the percentage increase on in pre-EMBA salary on graduation category, and 4th position in the percentage increase on in pre-EMBA salary after one year.

Commenting on the achievement, MBA Director, Dr Uchenna Uzo said, “At Lagos Business School, we have consistently proven that the knowledge we offer on our MBA programmes adequately prepare managers for career progression. This is because we feel the pulse of the market and deliver a curriculum that is adapted to solving our students’ distinct challenges.”

Lagos Business School was ranked alongside other top business schools including the IESE Business School, Yale School of Management, and Kellogg School of Management. 

This is the second consecutive year the LBS Modular Executive MBA is being ranked by The Economist magazine. 

In May, Lagos Business School’s Custom Executive Education was named first in Africa by the 2020 Financial Times Executive Education ranking.
