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.
ALU provides higher education for a higher purpose. Our students declare missions, not majors.
They develop the real-world skills to take on the world’s most pressing challenges. And they take ownership of their learning from day one through our peer and student-led approach – because ALU believes in the power and agency of young people to start shaping the future right now.
Together with a world-class faculty and staff, our students are igniting a ripple of positive impact across Africa and the world. Join us
