The Dangote Business School is a new building within the premises of Bayero University that comprises of a 650 seating capacity auditorium, two theatres, four lecture halls, two libraries, incubation centre, two cafeterias, 800kva soundproof generator and borehole among others.
According to a statement from Dangote Group, the billionaire industrialist noted that effort was made to ensure that the school met the international standards and be one of the biggest business schools in the sub-Sahara Africa.
“Dangote described the school as best of its kind in northern Nigeria, adding that the school, as accredited by the National Universities Commission, will be the first business school to offer Doctor of Business Administration programme in Nigeria.
“The African richest man added that the business school would ease sharing of business information globally and how future African leaders could advance their businesses as well as building capacity which would translate to boosting the continent’s economy,” the statement read in part.
Dangote was quoted as saying the Dangote Business School, which was opened by the Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, was conceived as part of his contributions towards encouraging world-class entrepreneurship education in Nigeria.
Meanwhile, the Vice-Chancellor of the university, Prof. Muhammed Bello, said that the new business school would make the university to serve the society better through training, research and services.
Bello said the university adopted the name “Dangote Business School” because Dangote was internationally synonymous with innovation, entrepreneurship and successes in business and industry.
During the Lagos-Kano Economic Summit, which held in Lagos, Nigeria, Aliko Dangote disclosed that the yet-to-be-completed refinery and petroleum complex in the Lekki Free Trade Zone (LFTZ) will earn Nigerian economy N8 trillion ($26.2 billion) annually.
