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
