Dangote Business School (DBS) of Bayero University Kano has been commissioned to serve as an incubation centre for entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial development in the country.
The building complex, comprising lecture theatres, Libraries, offices and cafeterias among others was unveiled by the Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II.
According to Aliko Dangote, the goal for the business school is for it to become a reference point when it comes to learning how to do business successfully in Nigeria and in Africa. This means that this business school should carry out studies and research that are specific to our needs and ways of doing business which would allow more information to be shared globally on how Africans can do business.
‘’I believe that this business school can and should foster relationship with other business schools across Africa and the globe and I am sure they already have affiliation with other three universities and we are working to make sure that they also have with the Harvert business school.
‘’This business school will be training and preparing future African leaders in business, who will understand how to develop, and also train others to become visionary businessmen. I also see this business school playing a role in accelerating the economic integration of our continent’’ Dangote said.
The Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II called on the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to complete the ‘centre of excellence project’ it has started in the Bayero University Kano, saying the project if completed would complement DBS to achieving its set
Dangote Business School was established in 2015, conducting programmes at the initial location inside the new campus.
The school currently offers post graduate programmes, however, its doctoral degree program in Business Administration will commence soon, and thus will be the only school in Nigeria to offer doctoral degree program in Business Administration.
