Apply to study at ALU and get the best Degrees that prepare you for the world today and tomorrow!
All ALU students get the opportunity to harness the characteristics essential for creating a mission-based life of impact and purpose. This means a core part of our programme is to challenge you to identify the impact you want to have in the world. We then develop the 21st-century skills and network you need as a young leader, professional or entrepreneur, to help achieve this impact.
The programmes at ALU allow students to explore the fine line between great leadership and entrepreneurial thinking. Students get the opportunity to grow and develop skills such as self-awareness, identifying opportunities, design thinking, proactivity and innovation. They are prepared to become entrepreneurial leaders who will harness the tremendous opportunities that abound on the continent.
At ALU we believe the key to success is not memorising facts and figures that can change, but on learning life-long skills that you can apply throughout your career. This is why we intentionally develop skills like self-leading, leading others, entrepreneurial thinking, quantitative reasoning, critical thinking, managing complex projects, and communication in students through practice, on-the-job experience, coaching, and regular feedback – in conjunction with our academic programmes.
ALU has students from over 40 countries. Our students become part of a talented, diverse community from around the world. They are surrounded by driven, talented, and passionate classmates. They are exposed to ALU’s unique and powerful network of mentors, guest speakers, experts-in-residence, industry leaders, investors, ALU staff, and employer partners.
The exposure I have received through both work experience, classroom experiential, and extensive academic training allowed me to deepen my knowledge about what it means to be an agent of change in 21st century Africa.
When I am asked about what I love the most about ALU, my answer is always the people. I have dived into a diverse community with a rich culture and brilliant perspectives. I have learnt so much from the faculty and my peers. I’m always excited to have fruitful conversations that drive my growth.
ALU has given me the opportunity to practice what I do in class, develop new skills, and most importantly take my first steps in the professional world. I’m currently a study intern working as a Residential Assistant where I drive the cultural integration of over 100 students from 35+ countries.
My absolute favourite thing about ALU is the strong sources of mentorship that is available to us. We constantly have executives from top companies visiting us all the time in addition to the super talented staff we have on campus.
