NBS catches up with Nigerian Alumni

NTU alumni in Nigeria met with James Stephenson, of Nottingham Business School, and Selma Toohey, Senior International Officer for Africa, at the start of May.

James and Selma hosted an event in Lagos and met with ten alumni from Nottingham Business School (NBS). They let them know about the latest news and developments in the Business School and at NTU, and the alumni updated James and Selma with their news. It was also a great opportunity for NTU Nigerian alumni across the years to meet and network, as alumni from the class of 2007 through to 2016 attended.

Wole Ibukun, (MSC International Business 2012) said after the event: “It was a pleasure meeting alumni and sharing stories about life back in our country after NBS.  These meet-ups are quite useful because we also network with new and old alumni with similar careers and help each other.”

James and Selma also caught up with NBS Alumni Fellow, Dr Rotimi Olaniyan, (DBA Business Administration 2015). Dr Olaniyan studied at NBS alongside his daughter, Tola, who graduated from MSc Human Resource Management in 2015 and has recently returned to Nigeria and secured a job.

Dr Olaniyan is continuing his links with NTU through the Alumni Fellowship scheme which involves him mentoring current students and will be lending his expertise in entrepreneurship by teaching at NBS in September, continuing his family’s strong relationship with NBS.

NTU has a large and growing alumni community in Nigeria and hold events throughout the year in Lagos and Abuja.
