Nonprofit Management Programme for Senior Executives (NPLMfEX)

The Certificate in Nonprofit Management for Senior Executives (aged 18 -35) is designed to strengthen the leadership, governance, and management capacity of experienced young executives working in or with nonprofit organisations. The program equips participants to deal with strategic and high-level challenges and opportunities in their organisations and community.

The program ran through essential facets of NPO management while availing participants the opportunity to meet with leading experts within the space and network amongst ourselves leveraging on each other’s strength to deliver course works.

Administrative & Strategy Associate - Junior Achievement Nigeria

I had little background knowledge of the Non-Profit Sector and the program has given me the level of confidence required to switch from a for-profit organization to a non-profit one. It was very engaging and the facilitators were very practical in their mode of communication. I have already recommended the course to some friends and colleagues

I learnt a lot through the facilitators, the way and manner they delivered their lectures. To be honest LBS NPMfEx program is what all Nongovernment senior executives need in this time of craving for the sustainability of our programs. Thank you LBS for the opportunity

I have gained tremendous skill and knowledge through the sessions and interactions with my instructors and colleagues. Our organization cannot be the same ever. I have been inspired and challenged to build an organization that will outgrow me as the founder. And I have accepted the challenge. Thank you LBS.

The programme was intensive, rigorous, and capacity-building. I learnt new things I should have known when I was starting the organization and I am grateful for the privilege to be a participant as well as having access to our experienced facilitators. They were more than ready to help

Globally, the waste management industry is increasingly moving towards a circular economy and managing waste innovatively to reduce negative impacts on public and environmental health. However, in Nigeria, there is a dearth of professional training programmes on sustainable and innovative waste management to facilitate the growth of the industry

For us at Alon Green Recycling just about to kick start our operations the course came at the right time because it was able to show us pitfalls to avoid and how to incorporate sustainability and circular economy concepts in our business from the start .

Adewale Badmos

Business Development Officer - Alon Green

I have desperately longed to have an LBS certificate. So participating in this program on a topic I am passionate about at a time we are scaling up production of upcycling plastic waste to Interlocking Tiles was not only amazing but divine.

The Dow-LBS program is superb. From program content, structure, to standard management and skilled facilitators. During the course of learning, I was equipped with financial management skills, developing an attractive business model and sustained traction for products, as well as arising opportunity and technology in the circular economy and a lot more in the waste management industry, which we really wanted at MichelEE Engineering Integrated Service. I am grateful to LBS-Dow for this wonderful opportunity. In fact, this is a milestone for us at MitchelEE Engineering.

Okiroro Ayouvuta

Managing Director - Michel EE Engineering

I have attended a lot of training for my recycling business, but this is the first time I will be lectured on areas that are specifically focused on the waste management industry. I don’t know of another institution where you can get this. Thank you so much, the Dow Foundation and LBS


LBS is a pacesetter in delivering quality teaching instructions in ethical methods. The Dow Programme is a testament to the fact that the Staff are committed to excellence through the teaching methods used and how the lectures were delivered to participants


The Programme has helped me put my business in perspective and I am sure my business will never remain the same again.

I understood the financial and sustainability aspect of my business. The knowledge I have gotten from this programme would help me structure my business going forward.
