Prof. Mike Adebamowo, Executive Director, University of Lagos Business School (ULBS) has urged graduating participants to be game changers, in not just their respective organisations, but the nation at large.

Adebamowo gave the charge at the 3rd graduation reception of the class of 2023 EMBA participants on Saturday in Lagos.

According to him, the participants have been equipped with both the knowledge and skills needed to turn around the prospects of not only their respective organisations but the nation at large.

He noted that a total of 18 of the 65 graduating participants of the school bagged distinction, while others were admitted in the Pass category.

Giving a breakdown of statistics of the graduating participants, the executive director said a total of seven of the EMBA (weekend) 2022/2023 set, were among graduating participants who made the distinction.

He added that 27 others were admitted in the Pass category.

For the 2022/2023 Weekend EMBA, four of the graduating participants were awarded distinction while four others were admitted in the Pass category.

“Today, we have come to witness the release of another set of eagles, the third set who have been raised to join the league of global leaders raised by the school.

“In Aug. 2020, the ULBS was admitted into the membership of Business Graduates Association, London. The ULBS is the first Business school in the country into the membership on May 12, 2021.

“The school became the fourth business school in the country to be recognised by the Association of African Business Schools, Sandton, South Africa, among others.

“The ULBS started operations in 2019, enrolled the first set of participants in Sept. 2019 and they graduated in record time as promised in 2021 and after that graduated the set in 2022.

“We are happy that these two sets of graduates are doing very well in their various careers and organisations.

“Let me use this opportunity therefore, to implore all our graduating participants to make use of all they have learnt in the school to impact their various organisations, and society, as well as be good ambassadors of the school in all the areas of life,” he said.

In her brief remark, the Vice Chancellor of the university, Prof. Folasade Ogunsola tasked the graduating participants to go out to the larger space and show the UNILAG brand, which is progressive, ethical and always creative.

“What we have done is that we have given them more skills to better navigate the situation in our country.

“And I am quite confident that with people like them in their respective spheres of life,  we will not have issues. The school is young, but it has achieved a lot in its short span of existence and will continue to grow,” she assured.

One of the graduating participants, Mr Ajilola Ibrahim, EMBA class governor of 2023, expressed joy to be among the graduating participants, noting that it was a journey that required resilience, hard work and proper planning.

“I feel very happy being among the graduating participants, having gone through all the hassles. It is only proper that we return all the thanks to God Almighty,” he said.
