Grace Lake Partners in partnership with the Alumni Annual Fund, is offering the Oxford Grace Lake Scholarship 2020 for a top MBA candidate from Nigeria.
About the Oxford Grace Lake Scholarship
Ladi Delano is a two-time Saïd Business School alumnus (MSc in Major Programme Management; Postgraduate Diploma in Global Business.
In 2014, together with Grace Lake Partners (GLP), Ladi founded an investment and advisory firm that builds and operates businesses that meet the needs of Nigerian society while creating economic value for the company and its shareholders.
The plight of many young Nigerians who can not continue their education weighs heavily on Ladi’s heart. This belief led to the founding of the GLP Cares Foundation.
