LCCI Receives Approval from LASU to Launch Entrepreneurship Postgraduate Programs

The Lagos State University (LASU) has given the green light to the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) to kickstart Postgraduate programs in Entrepreneurship.

This collaboration between LCCI and LASU will offer Postgraduate Diploma (PGD), Masters, and Doctorate programs in Entrepreneurship to the public.

According to a statement from LCCI, these programs will equip students with a deep understanding of Entrepreneurship and the necessary management functions required for a successful business venture.

The practical application of management theories will also enhance the entrepreneurial skills of the students.

In August 2022, LCCI and LASU signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to work together in developing programs in entrepreneurial education and other beneficial areas, aiming to boost the SME sector.

The Diploma in Entrepreneurship program commenced in May 2023, with pioneer students now in their second and final year of study.

As the leading Chamber of Commerce in Nigeria, LCCI is committed to providing top-notch business development services, including training and consultancy, to its members and the business community.

The Business Education Services and Training Unit of LCCI currently offers training, coaching, and mentorship programs to SMEs and aspiring entrepreneurs nationwide.

LASU, established with a vision of promoting learning and academic excellence, continues to strive towards becoming a hub of excellence in teaching, research, and service to humanity.

Admission for the 2023/2024 Diploma in Entrepreneurship Program is ongoing, while the Postgraduate Program is set to commence on May 3rd, 2024.

Students in the Postgraduate Program will benefit from entrepreneurship mentoring by successful entrepreneurs in LCCI, access to resources, and opportunities to participate in business exhibitions like the annual LCCI Lagos International Trade Fair (LITF).

The program includes Practical Entrepreneurial Skills Acquisition, Business Counselling & Mentoring, Business Tours, Business Clinics, weekend hybrid classes, dedicated lecturers, and access to a User-friendly Learning Management System (LMS).
