Lagos Business School, a key partner of Strathmore Business School received double accreditation from the Advanced Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) and the International Accreditation Advisory Board of the Association of MBAs (AMBA). AACSB is the leading global accreditation body for business schools offering undergraduate, masters and doctorate degrees in business and accounting. AACSB involves a process of rigorous internal review, evaluation, and adjustment, which can take several years to complete. Over this time, the school develops and implements a plan to meet AACSB’s Accreditation Standards, which demand a high quality teaching environment, innovative programming, and active engagement with industry.
The AMBA accreditation represents the highest standard of achievement in postgraduate business education. By this accreditation, LBS has joined an elite group of only two percent of top business schools in 70 countries with AMBA accreditation. In Africa, there are 9 other schools that have achieved this accreditation with 6 in South Africa and one each in Tunisia, Morocco and Egypt. The AMBA system judges the quality of a business school’s strategy, mission, faculty, students, curriculum, and assessment.
The school, which was founded 25 years ago and has been committed to world class standard of teaching, learning, research, academic and professional management, measures up with few business schools that can boast of such international mandate in the globe.
Strathmore Business School’s partnership with LBS entails faculty and student exchange programs, joint organisation of research/workshops and publications, curriculum development in management education and online learning development projects. Other key business schools that SBS has partnered with include; IESE Business School – Spain, Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS) – South Africa, Nanyang Business School – Singapore and Sauder School of Business – Switzerland among others.
