The ALU School of Business (ALUSB) is a part of African Leadership University (ALU), which is accredited by the Higher Education Council of Rwanda and is located in the heart of the Rwandan capital, Kigali. The ALUSB MBA degree is awarded by African Leadership University.

ALUSB launched its first MBA class in 2016 and graduated its first class in July 2018.


In less than 6000 days, Africa will have the largest workforce in the world. This population boom could either be a humanitarian global crisis or the greatest source of global prosperity. The vision of the ALU School of Business is to serve as a catalyst for prosperity in Africa by developing African business leaders and entrepreneurs to help make this century The African Century!

In the words of our Founder, Fred Swaniker:

“This is Africa’s century, but Africa needs us to achieve its full potential. The private sector will play a key role: maximising current opportunities and unearthing new areas of growth. The ALU School of Business is preparing the global leaders needed to help create this change.” – Fred Swaniker, Founder & CEO
