Port Harcourt—Garden City Premier Business School (GCPBS), an internationally recognized institution in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, has received the Management Excellence Award from the Nigerian Institute of Management (NIM).
The award was presented to the Business School at the Institute’s 2023 Annual National Management Conference in Lagos on Monday.
Presenting the award, the President and Chairman of Council of NIM, Dr. Christiana Atako, commended the school for providing quality services in the area of postgraduate and professional education, as well as individual and corporate training.
She said it is not surprising that the business school is receiving such an award, adding that the institution has a very impressive profile, which she said is part of the reason for its success.
Atako further commended the President of Garden City Premier Business School, Prof. Silva Opuala-Charles, for leading the school to such a great height, stating that he rightly followed his calling, which is the business of education.
She said “I am really not surprised that Garden City Premier Business School won this award because of the man behind it.
“When we came into the council in 2021, Opuala-Charles was a Doctor, but as I speak, he’s a Professor, and he understands his calling that was why he decided to open a school.
“If you read the profile of that institution, you will know why NIM chose to give this organization this award.”
