Our Campus

The UBA Academy campus is physically located at the Group Headquarters in Lagos, Nigeria but with a strong digital footprint across the globe.
Our training facilities are built for blended learning and immersion with smart classrooms, an auditorium, library and technology facilities, lounge and social room, available to both staff and external.

Online and digital learning is also available as it gives people the flexibility to study at a time that suits them. This is important for employees who choose to work remotely.

Our Learning Approach

Our programmes are structured to offer exactly the right training for future leaders in Africa. We provide world-class development programmes in English, French and Portuguese, as we develop a pan-African talent pool, empowered to shape the continent’s future.
With more focus on experiences, connections and opportunities, we have developed curricula and training plans that encourage innovative thinking and growth.


Whatever role or level of experience, you can take advantage of our learning and development opportunities.


Explore hundreds of corporate training & professional courses from our 2020 training plan. The Corporate Training Calendar is for all levels of employees & professionals in the tribe.
