Lagos Business School Receives AACSB Five Years Re-Accreditation


Lagos Business School (LBS) has received the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) re-accreditation, which is valid for five years.

This re-accreditation further reaffirms LBS’s premier status as being the only business school in Nigeria and one of eight in Africa to be accredited by AACSB.

While congratulating each institution on their achievement, Stephanie M. Bryant, executive vice president and Chief Accreditation Officer of AACSB, said; “Every AACSB accredited school has demonstrated a focus on excellence in all areas, including teaching, research, curricula development, and student learning. The intense peer[1]review process exemplifies their commitment to quality business education.”

AACSB has for more than a century been synonymous with the highest standards in business education. It is a global nonprofit association for the business education industry providing quality assurance, business education intelligence, and learning and development services to over 1,700 member organizations and more than 840 accredited business schools worldwide. It is the largest global business education network, linking students, academia, and businesses to advance the cause of business education around the world.

Chris Ogechie, Dean of LBS while commenting on the milestone said that “by the feat of the AACSB Re-accreditation, Lagos Business School has once more distinguished itself as a management education provider of high repute in Africa.

According to him, the reaccreditation is an external validation of our excellent quality; our goal through our MBA programmes and other executive programmes to develop responsible leaders who are solving Africa’s social and institutional business problems”.

Ogechie further said the accreditation is international in scope and reach, and AACSB works under the belief that accredited schools should be of the highest standard and reflect changing trends and innovation in business education.

“Its accreditation process reflects this commitment to fostering engagement, acceleration, innovation and amplifies impact in business education and demands business schools to perform at the highest level continually”, Ogechie said.
