In a bid to encourage academic excellence and celebrate outstanding performance of members, Lagos Business School Alumni Association (LBSAA) is set to host this year’s President’s dinner on Saturday 8 June, 2013 at Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island. This annual event of the alumni association is the most anticipated social event of the prestigious school.

According to Ademola Aladekomo, the president of LBSAA, “This year’s dinner is expected to be the biggest in the history of the association as we expect about 1,500 guests to grace the occasion. Already, some distinguished Nigerians have been invited while over 20 corporate organisations are supporting the dinner by means of sponsorship and corporate tables.

The event is expected to witness the presence of distinguished professionals from all walks of life and captains of industries who are products of the prestigious institution.

The President’s dinner is an annual event of the association held to equally honour some of the alumni members who have distinguished themselves in their chosen field and also some deserving individuals and corporate organisations respectively.

In the same vein, Henry Onukwuba, the director, Alumni Relations, said ‘The high point of this year’s President’s dinner is the public presentation of the book on Lagos Business School written by Albert Alos, the pioneer dean of LBS and the pioneer vice chancellor of Pan–Atlantic University (formerly Pan-African University).

The Lagos Business School was founded in 1991 as a business institution set up to promote international business standards among organisations and equip young professionals in the continent with the necessary business skills. LBS is highly ranked as one of the most respected business schools on the African continent and in the world.
