Nigerian dignitaries took part in the opening ceremonies of the Dangote Business School at Bayero University, Kano. The school is named for Africa’s richest man, inventor and business leader Aliko Dangote. Dangote contributed $3.5 million to the school to bring entrepreneurship education in the region up to international standards. The school is described as ultra-modern and one of the largest in sub-Saharan Africa. It consists of a 650-seat auditorium, two theatres, four lecture halls, two libraries, and a business incubator. It is accredited by the National Universities Commission, and it is the first business school in Nigeria to offer a Ph.D. in business administration. School leaders would like to eventually forge a partnership with Harvard Business School in the United States. At the ceremony, luminaries lauded Dangote for not allowing his wealth to divert his attention from meaningful service, and they practically begged him to stay involved with the school in some educational capacity, if only on a sporadic basis.
