NLI is in strategic partnership with Oxford University's Said Business School to commence a Nigerian Shapers Programme at Oxford University, UK. The programme, to commence in 2016, is a one-year MBA Degree at Said Business School of Oxford University. It combines the technical knowledge required to launch, grow and run innovative organisations under conditions of complexity and uncertainty with the applied and personal development needed to inspire others. The Nigerian Shapers will be introduced to other international networks as well as networks of capital and expertise. Additionally, the programme will accelerate the Shapers' personal development, insight and persuasive abilities. The Shapers will be provided access to the wider Oxford community of Colleges, other departments and the Oxford Union. Finally, the Nigerian Shapers will also belong to a wider network of Global Shapers.
