AFRICAN LEADERSHIP ACADEMY

ALA was founded in South Africa with a vision to transform Africa by developing its next generation of leaders. Over time, this initiative has expanded to include:  

  • Africa Careers Network: provides placement of top ALA talent

  • The Anzisha Awards: a prize to recognise budding entrepreneurial talent

  • Global Leadership Adventures: short-term leadership programs around the world

AFRICAN LEADERSHIP UNIVERSITY

ALU was founded with a mission to develop young leaders into innovative problem solvers. With campuses in Mauritius and Rwanda, ALU awards internationally-accredited degrees via a unique learning model emphasizing leadership fundamentals and project-based learning. From ALU, the first pan-African business school ALUSB was launched in 2016.

ALX

ALX is a rapidly expanding leadership development platform that is disrupting the way talent is developed and how it is matched with employers and investors. Launched in 2018, ALX is currently in Kenya and South Africa with plans to open in Nigeria and Morocco later this year.
