- Why ALU
- Study at ALU
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 most significant challenges in new ways. They want their time at a university to lead them to a job or even to launch a company or create social impact. They want to be part of a global network committed to their success.
Watch and listen to the amazing stories and impact created by students of the African Leadership University. Students at ALU declare missions - rather than choose majors - to solve Africa’s greatest challenges with creative, transformative solutions while developing the skills to put those solutions into action.
