Destined for


No matter what their mission, ALU students are destined for success. They go on to graduate schools at the top universities and gain employment with top global companies. ALU alumni entrepreneurs launch successful ventures that will have a lasting impact on Africa and the world.

ALU prioritizes the development of

21st century skills

—things like self-leading, leading others, entrepreneurial thinking, quantitative reasoning, critical thinking, managing complex projects, and communication. Most universities hope that students pick up some of these skills during their education. At ALU, we intentionally and explicitly develop these skills in students through practice, on-the-job experience, coaching, and regular feedback.
