COMMITMENT AT THE LAGOS BUSINESS SCHOOL FOR 2012-2015A PROMISE TO TAKE ACTION NOW OR IN THE FUTUREOur commitment to take action at Lagos Business School is as old as the School itself. As the Dean, Dr Enase Okonedo pointed out in a personal interview:“…right from the very beginning we set out to raise ethical and responsible managers and leaders who will make a positive difference in society. It is a self-imposed mandate that speaks to our ambition to positively impact on the practice of management in Nigeria…It is a huge responsibility, but knowing that we’re about the only school in the country where they can get this kind of education, and our belief that there’s no institution that is better placed to achieve this mandate than us provides us with inspiration to continue doing what we do.”Lagos Business School embeds humanistic management education in its curriculum by teaching business ethics in all programmes of ten days and longer. Business ethics stresses the point that organisations have responsibilities towards employees, customers, competitors and society at large, rather than existing only to maximise profit for shareholders. In addition to ethics, LBS has also developed a required course in philosophical anthropology on the MBA programme, titled “The Nature of Human Beings”.

Implementation methodologies

THE CSR CENTRE will continue to engage the public and private sectors in the global discuss on sustainability through the annual CSR Conference which was launched in 2011, the CSR Master Class. We have just selected a team of faculty and staff to drive the Higher Education Sustainability Initiative, the PRME and other sustainability initiatives which the School has committed to.
