In a total of 74 fresh MBA Graduates of Business School Netherlands, 11 Nigerians scored distinctions (including one Cum Laude) in their final dissertations in the Executive MBA programme while two Nigerians also achieved overall distinctions. The institution, which is preparing to graduate its 2017 set in The Netherlands, made this known in a press statement on Thursday.
The CEO of Business School Netherlands in Nigeria, Mr. Lere Baale, pointed out that the graduands had undergone a programme that toughened their mind to adopt action-oriented solutions through BSN’s proprietary ‘action learning,’ a scientific learning methodology, which enabled them to experience direct impact of what they learnt on themselves, their work, their organisations and their future.
According to him, BSN’s unique teaching and learning methods had earned the school accolades across the world and endeared it to students, graduates and employers worldwide and particularly in Nigeria.
The intent of BSNN Action Learning is to contribute to higher education in management learning and facilitate the development of African CEOs and managers’ skills, knowledge, research capabilities and ability to take action with regards to the problems, prospects and challenges facing their own organisations.
The programmes offered by the school carry the intrinsic character of the Action Learning methodology with a highly relevant approach to effective management development, which has proven to be one of the critical factors resulting in the business school’s current position as the leading provider of MBA Studies, recognised in Europe.
The Nigerian outreach of BSN commenced operations in October 2003 as one of the affiliate learning centres of Business School Netherlands across the world and operates from purpose-built facilities in Ikeja, Lagos and study centres in Abuja and Port Harcourt.
Furthermore, Baale stated that the vision of Business School Netherlands is to be global provider of excitingly different learning experiences that enable CEOs and managers learn faster than the prevailing rate of change.
“We have kept true to our mission to contribute to higher education in management learning; and facilitate the development of African managers’ skills, knowledge, research capabilities and ability to take action with regards to the problems, prospects and challenges facing their own organisations,” he added.
