Obi laments Nigeria’s exclusion from Harvard Business School global immersion course

Labour Party, LP, presidential candidate in the February 25, 2023, poll, Mr. Peter Obi, has lamented the non inclusion of Nigeria in Harvard Business School class of 2025 programme for select 16 countries for its global immersion course.

Obi on his X on Wednesday, said: “Nigeria’s negative image was on display as Harvard Business School class of 2025 programme has selected 16 countries for its global immersion course, but notably excluded Nigeria, despite the programme leader being a Nigerian professor.

“Instead, Kenya, Rwanda, Morocco, and Ghana were chosen as the four African focus countries for this initiative.

“This programme aims to teach students leadership, teamwork, and cross-cultural understanding by immersing them in different continents, cultures, and areas.

“The students have chosen Nairobi, Kenya as their first preference and have been attached to various Kenyan companies to study and present solutions to real-world problems.

“This omission of Nigeria is particularly striking given the country’s potential and capabilities.

“Unfortunately, Nigeria’s reputation and attractiveness to international institutions and investors has recently been severely impacted by major obvious drawbacks.

“The class of 2025 programme demonstrates the power of collaboration and knowledge sharing between institutions and countries.

“Hopefully, Nigeria will take note of these shortcomings and strive to improve its reputation and attractiveness within today’s global community. That is the challenge of the new Nigeria that remains ever possible,” he added.
