Eleven Nigerians have scored distinctions in their final dissertations in the Executive MBA programme of the Business School Netherlands, while two others bagged overall distinctions this year.
The institution, which is preparing to graduate its 2017 set in The Netherlands, made this known in a press statement on Thursday.
According to the statement, 74 new MBA graduates from the school will join over 1,000 others from over 41 nations for its 19th Graduation Ceremony holding at Steigenberger Kurhaus Hotel, Scheveningen, The Netherlands on Saturday October 7, 2017.
The statement reads, “Our graduation ceremony is the highlight of the year for everyone connected with BSN. Fourteen years after opening BSN in Nigeria, we are proud to be supporting a large group of working professionals and contributing to business education in Nigeria, operating from the economic capital of Africa.”
In a related development, the school also said it had commenced a special MBA for chief executive officers and C-Suite executives.
Noting that chief executive officers faced what it described as internal vulnerabilities and external challenges in an economy fraught with puzzling and chaotic conditions, it said, “BSN Special MBA for CEOs is a unique proposition designed to help CEOs and leaders to achieve company-wide transformation while equipping them with tough skills to ride the waves of changing economic climate and achieve sustainable leadership in their respective industries.”
Also, the statement said the Business School Netherlands had earned international acclaims from global bodies including the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programmes, the Institute of Action Learning and ATEA.
It added, “The Nigerian outreach of BSN commenced operations in October 2003 as one of the affiliate learning centres of Business School Netherlands across the world.”
