African Leadership University

Let your mission
be your guide.

In an ever-changing


narrow academic theory quickly loses relevance. You need to develop the ability to solve problems and be prepared for the jobs of tomorrow. Students at ALU declare missions, not majors — because our continent and our planet can’t wait. We need Africa’s best and brightest to start their missions today.

From designing a plastic-free future to exploring digital advocacy for LGTBQIA+ refugees,

our students are responding to Africa’s greatest challenges with creative, transformative solutions while developing the skills to put those solutions into action. It all starts with a mission.

ALU students find purpose and
deeper meaning in this
way of learning.

Without the constraints of majors and classroom walls, the world truly opens up for ALU students to prepare for a life of impact. Faculty mentor and guide students through a self-driven, personalized learning journey.
