THE ALUSB MBA PROGRAMME IS OUR FLAGSHIP ACCREDITED POSTGRADUATE DEGREE IN BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION. IT IS A 20-MONTH TRANSFORMATIVE MBA PROGRAMME FOR AFRICA’S BUSINESS LEADERS.
The ALUSB MBA is the first pan-African programme of its kind. Designed for ambitious, working professionals who are immersed in dynamic economies across Africa, this world-class, 20-month programme blends in-classroom ‘’intensive’’ sessions with interactive, online learning.
Our blended learning model allows you to fit your studies around your work schedule, enabling you to apply and practice new tools, frameworks and insights on the job.
You will join your peers 6 times during the programme, for week-long ‘’intensive” sessions, where you will learn directly from an ‘all-star’ cast of African business leaders.
Doing business in Africa is all about relationships. As the first pan-African MBA programme in the world, the ALUSB MBA plugs its participants into a powerful network of top African business titans they can collaborate with for the rest of their careers. The MBA is an investment in pan-African ‘relationship capital’ that can be deployed later in doing business on the continent.
We believe the best way to learn leadership is through practice, not theory. As such, students within ALUSB’s MBA programme remain employed throughout their studies. They are able to learn a lesson on one day and apply it immediately to address a real work situation the next. Through the MBA’s leadership development programme, candidates are able to see an immediate impact on their growth as business leaders.
The ALUSB MBA costs $30,000 over a 20-month period (not including flights and accommodation for in-person sessions) compared to $200,000 for an MBA at a typical top-10 business school in the US. Because candidates do not leave their employment, they do not lose income. We make world-class business education accessible to African business leaders.
