Says the Abuja-based best graduating student, Mrs
Kemi Makun, “
I like the learning style of BSN –
Action Learning. Practice makes perfect. It was perfect for me. I wanted an
environment where I will meet people from diverse backgrounds and varied
challenges. A place where participants could share their experiences and help
one another treat their various problems. BSN perfectly fit into the picture.
Besides, their marketing team was
persistent in convincing me to join the programme.”
school states, “At Business School Netherlands, we recognise the fact that the
body of knowledge is growing exponentially. Even the most enthusiastic student
is not going to fathom it all in a lifetime, let alone during a two-year
course. That is why we look at the academic part of the MBA from a different
point of view. We start with the problem, your problem, a relevant issue that
your organisation needs to solve. Once identified, you will learn to critically
evaluate the available knowledge in the respective field, weigh the
alternatives and propose an appropriate solution.”
Mrs Makun says of the effect of the Action
Learning programme: “
I have tried to implement every single
topic of my ALP. I have seen results in
my business since then. My business has
also transformed.  I now have an office
with staff working with me within the
space of two years. The learning has changed my thinking positively, and I can confidently say that I
have all that I need to compete in my
industry. I will appreciate my employees more, spend money to make more money
and treat my clients as kings.”
School Netherlands commenced in Nigeria in 2003. Student enrolment in Nigeria
has grown to 1100 while about 400 students have graduated from its MBA
School Netherlands is present in 15 countries and draws students from 41
