Ranging from 35 to 40 in age, the participants will be taught by IESE faculty members Javier Santomá, Sebastien Brion, Mike Rosenberg, Lluís Renart, Perdo Videla, Antonio Dávila, Yih-teen Lee and Miguel Angel Ariño. The learning experience is designed in collaboration SBS and LBS, which are among IESE's Associated Business Schools.

The module is an integral part of IESE's growing activities in Africa, many of which are led in close collaboration with its Associated Business Schools on the continent.
