Who LBS Help?




So I've been yearning to go for a business course for sometime now. My plan initially was either South Africa, Nairobi or Dubai. But with the shape my year is taking, travel looks somewhat tentative. 

So... I'm thinking what course can I take here while I work. 

I discuss this with every business minded person I meet. 

Last week I met a lady on the WhatsApp group for the team members of a conference coming up later in the year. I'm the team lead for the event-planning. I got talking to her in a private chat and it was so seemless; one of those people that you're just destined to meet. She is also a lawyer, also an events planner, we went to law school and were called to the Bar together, and coincidentally we have a lot of mutual friends. 

We were trying to pick a date for our first meeting when she said she had classes on that day, she's in business school. 

I simply presumed that she meant LBS (Lagos Business School) but I soon learnt that she meant LLBS  (Leading Ladies Business School). At our meeting I enquired about LLBS as I'd never heard about it before, and she swore that she made the right decision going there. Yes, she first went to enquire at LBS but the entrepreneurship course she wanted to attend costs about N960,000 and that was way above her budget. At LLBS however her two-month course is costing N60,000 and she tells me that in just one month of attendance, her life has changed tremendously. 

I've discussed this with a few people ever since. I asked a few LBS alumni, and it seems that just like Harvard business school alumni, the one major factor, the reason many go there, and seemingly the most important benefit is the network. 

Everyone I meet who's attending or about to attend LBS, or has done a course there, talks not so much about the skills, the knowledge or the transformation their minds underwent, as they do the network (and connections). 

That's not such a bad thing as your network is your net worth. But... I'm certain there's much more, yes?

So I'm just sitting here this Sunday afternoon thinking. I really want to equip myself. Naturally I want the best and I've seen the roll call of some of LBS alumni, that's great company to be in as you get ushered into this elite club and become on one-on-one terms with some of the greatest business mind in the country, or the world, even. Besides LBS is LBS!

So even if I join LLBS for their May batch because of the great things I've heard about it (she said some of their lecturers actually also tutor at LBS!) I'd still like to do a program at LBS, maybe before the year ends, if the travel plans aren't viable. 

Some people have said "please who LBS epp?", some have even said "who business school epp?" (Err, ask google...) but I wonder what you think. 

Have you taken or thought of taking a course in business? What insititions did/will you consider? And how useful do you think these trainings really are in building a successful business empire?

Oh, has anyone here been a part of Poize Insider? Please what can you tell me about it? 

Please talk to me.

  2. Dear Thelma,

    My name is Sanumi Dawodu and I work at LBS, however, my opinion below is candid.

    If you want a business degree from a world class business school in Nigeria/West Africa, LBS is it. The School achieved two world standard accreditations last year that put it in 2% of world class accredited business schools.

    Look around for an LBS Alumni and ask about the value of an LBS education.
    The MBA graduates work in world class organisations and distinguish themselves everywhere they go.

    Let me not 'blow my own trumpet', but give you the opportunity to see a bit of this first-hand. I'd like to invite you to the 'MBA Experiential Session' which takes place on our campus at Km 22 Lekki-Epe expressway, Ajah
    on 17th March 2017.

    If you have any further questions, call Ifeanyi on 0708 007 0527 or email him here: iajeabili@lbs.edu.ng.
