Educating and nurturing executives and entrepreneurs in Africa

Our Goal

To educate and nurture executives and entrepreneurs in Africa, those who can put their talents to use at home, leading the change in Africa from within their own countries.

What We Do

Starting in 1992, we helped launch and develop three associated business schools on the continent:



Today, we continue coordinating joint efforts and activities along three lines:


  • Developing academic content and programs. We promote academic activities such as program design, case writing, teaching, research and faculty development with African PhDs and professors.
  • Establishing relations among managers, entrepreneurs and investors. We organize events showing Africa’s attractiveness to business enterprises, and promote business exchange between African business leaders and managers with interest and/or experience on the continent.
  • Contributing to social action in Africa. We collaborate with several NGOs by developing solidarity campaigns and volunteer projects.
