ENTREPRENEURIAL LEADERSHIP: IT'S IN OUR DNA

Entrepreneurial leaders rally the troops. They see failure as a learning opportunity. They take risks for the greater vision. They solve problems and chase solutions. Unfortunately, most schools don’t teach these skills. At ALU, we believe every 21st-century graduate should be able to think entrepreneurially. You’ll declare a mission, not a major. You’ll be exposed to the grand challenges and opportunities of our time and work to address and capture them. You’ll discover your life’s purpose and align your learning with it. The employers of tomorrow—organizations like our internship partners L’Oréal, Swiss Re, Cellulant, and more—want leaders and problem-solvers. ALU’s accredited undergraduate and postgraduate degree programs prepare help get you there.

BECOME FUTURE-PROOF

It’s no secret that machines and computers are becoming better than humans at things that used to require academic knowledge. That’s why in the future, human traits like imagination, creativity, entrepreneurship, and empathy will be more important than basic facts and figures. In order to “future-proof” graduates, we consider these traits to be fundamental skills, not by-products of education. At ALU, they’re in the DNA of everything we do—a certainty in an uncertain world.
