African Leadership University

Own Your


ALU is not for everyone.

It’s for the creator, the dreamer,
the leader.

Students choose ALU because they want hands-on real world experience led by some of the world’s most innovative educators. They want a place that does not limit their potential with old rules but believes in their capacity to solve Africa’s largest challenges in new ways. They want their time at a university to lead them to a job or even to launch a company. They want to be part of a global network committed to their success.

Simply put, they want a university that will prepare them to be the
leaders who will transform Africa.

We believe you learn how to address Africa’s grand challenges and opportunities by working and learning alongside those already grappling with the solutions.
