Lagos Business School holds dinner to recognise outstanding entrepreneurs

The Executive Master of Business Administration (MBA) 26 class of the Lagos Business School hosted its annual Executive MBA dinner Lagos, Friday, December 16, 2022.

Themed “Entrepreneurship as a Tool for Africa’s Transformation”, the event was graced by the presence of Ijeoma Ubosi, founder and CEO of Kontessa Group – a fashion and lifestyle retail group in Nigeria, who delivered a thought-provoking keynote address on leadership and innovation in the business world.

The purpose of the annual dinner, according to Olubunmi Abejirin, cohort president, is to collectively recognize all those who have contributed to the academic and professional growth of the Cohort.

“The dinner gives us an opportunity to lend our voice to emphasize the power of Entrepreneurship to positively change the business and economic landscape of Nigeria and Africa as a whole, while creating a networking event for three cohorts of the Executive MBA,” Olubunmi Abejirin said.

In addition to the keynote address, the dinner also featured networking opportunities with other members of the Executive MBA class and other business leaders in attendance.

Also at the event, awards were presented to deserving faculty and non-faculty members, including Akintola Owolabi, a professor of Cost and Management Accounting, who was conferred the Most Outstanding Faculty award, and Fabian Ajogwu, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) and LBS professor of Corporate Governance who received the Most Engaging Faculty award.
