Lagos Business School (LBS) is the graduate business school of the Pan-Atlantic University, Nigeria. LBS is located in Lekki, Lagos, Nigeria. The school offers academic programmes, executive programmes and short focused programmes in Management.

History[edit]

Lagos Business School (LBS) started in 1991 as a small institution called the Centre for Professional Communications (CPC) and offered management courses relevant to the Nigerian business environment. The school was previously owned by the African Development Foundation (ADF), a Nigerian not-for-profit educational foundation, but is now owned by the Pan-Atlantic University Foundation.

In 1996, LBS began a joint Executive MBA with IESE Business School, Barcelona while it applied for a license to operate as a private university with a view to begin offering an MBA programme. In January 2002, the Federal Government granted approval for the establishment of Pan-African University, and Lagos Business School thus became the first school of the Pan-Atlantic University (then Pan-African University) able to offer its own Executive programme. The full-time MBA programme was added in 2003 to develop younger professionals as functional managers with global perspectives and practical management knowledge relevant to the Nigerian business environment. A doctoral programme commenced in 2006 in response to the School’s need for more research work to support the practice of management in Nigeria.[1]

Lagos Business School is ranked among the best business schools in the world.[2] http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolrankings/executive-education-open-2012
