Four MBA students from Lagos Business School are to join other students from top-tier schools in the second edition of the African Markets Internship Programme (AMIP) scheduled to start on Monday, July 9.
Organised by The Tony Elumelu Foundation, AMIP is designed to help improve the competitiveness of Africa’s high-growth private sector businesses while introducing some of the world’s brightest young business talent to executive suites across Africa.

During the 10-week programme, the students will be working with African-owned or operated businesses in Abuja and Lagos, Accra, Dakar, Douala, Kigali, Lusaka and Nairobi. They are expected to work on short-term, high-impact strategic projects during the duration of the internship.
Participating interns from LBS are: Uzoma Okoro, Chukwuka Nwagbara, Funmilola Oshodi and Irene Kayoma.
This year, AMIP has included private-sector-facing public sector entities such as Capital Markets Authority, Nairobi, regulator of Kenya’s capital markets, and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Abuja, Nigeria as host organisations.
Other participating schools include: University of Ghana Business School; Centre Africain d’Etudes Supérieures en Gestion (CESAG), Senegal; The University of Capetown Business School, South Africa; London Business School; and IESE, Spain.
