Last week the Global CEO class of 2020 and 2021 visited the Lagos Business School in Nigeria for their international module. The international module aims to give the participants insights into the business landscape in West Africa, Central Africa and globally. The one-week Programme challenged business leaders to adopt a collaborative approach towards enhancing and expanding inter-Africa trade.

During the week-long sessions, the participants were able to interact with seasoned faculty members from Lagos Business School.  Apart from the class sessions, the participants explored the various business expansion opportunities available in Nigeria and the West African region. The participants also visited the Lagos Free Trade Area, where the CEOs were able to visualize expansion of their businesses by seeing the immense business opportunities available in Nigeria and West Africa at large.

About the Global CEO Africa Programme

Today the global, interconnected world calls for executive leaders who are uniquely attuned to the economic currents and market shifts that could advance or undermine their firm’s long-term sustainability.

The Global CEO – Africa Programme has been designed to enhance the CEOs’ strategic vision and equip them with new tools to navigate disruptive trends better. This Programme aims to bring together business leaders in a bid to co-create the African leadership solution even as they individually transform their organisations.

The African continent has an immense growth potential, but the realisation of this potential requires collaborative leadership. The Global CEO Africa Programme, aims to emphasize the roles, skills and competencies required for effective leadership for African organisations. This Programme is delivered by Strathmore University Business School in partnership with Yale School of Management in New Haven and Lagos Business School in Nigeria. The May 2022 intake is ongoing.
