Are you a young leader interested in becoming a global citizen, entrepreneurial thinker and changemaker? ALU is a fresh approach to university education, integrating your learning with the real world to deliver a world-class experience.

ALU develops skills in its graduates to ensure they will remain relevant even as the world changes. It also develops its students intellectually, provides them with work experience, and develops their “whole” being. ALU is opening campuses around Africa that will ultimately train 3 million entrepreneurial, ethical leaders for Africa and the world by 2060. Although based in Africa, ALU welcomes students from all around the world to its campuses. One campus is currently open on the Indian Ocean island of Mauritius (known as the African Leadership College) and a second one is in Rwanda . ALU was founded in 2013 by renowned Ghanaian educationalist Fred Swaniker . Mrs. Graça Machel serves as our Chancellor.
ALU is a network of world-class tertiary education institutions whose mission is to produce 3 million young African leaders over the next 50 years. ALU’s first campus was inaugurated in September 2015 in Mauritius and is known as African Leadership College. It’s second campus was inaugurated in September 2017 in Kigali Heights, Rwanda.

95% of universities only focus on teaching theoretical lessons to students; they fail to impart skills students will need in the work place. Is it any surprising that 45% of graduates from Africa are unemployed? Is it surprising that many companies term university graduates ‘’unemployable”? But ALU is different; apart from teaching students theoretical lessons, they also teach students skills of how to start an organization and how to get a job.On campus, you will learn communications and problem solving skills that will help you thrive in the working world . You will learn the hard skills of how to create jobs. You will receive constant feedback from external mentors, faculty and students on your strengths and weaknesses. This means you will come out the ALU with the skills to change Africa.
ALU is pioneering a fresh approach to higher education in the 21st century; offering accredited undergraduate, postgraduate and executive education programmes in a unique and imaginative way. By integrating students’ learning with the real world, empowering students to take ownership of their own learning, equipping each student to think entrepreneurially, and employing the most engaging and inspiring teaching methods, ALU is pioneering a new take on higher education and leadership development.
