The Alliance was created to formalise and strengthen our Africa initiative and to stimulate action in addition to generating ideas. The Alliance provides a platform to stimulate a vigorous dialogue about business, investment and entrepreneurship in Africa. Through our students & alumni members, we are able to incorporate both practitioner and academic perspectives on how to do business on the continent and the opportunities that exist. Our students and alumni join as members and the Alliance is jointly led by a School and student leadership committee.
The Alliance focuses on aspects relating to doing business in Africa, corporate engagement, and supporting the School's focus on Africa. It also brings together African thought-leaders to talk on the opportunities on the continent; and connects members with other African related networks and groups.
Members engage in and support the many African-related activities throughout the year and continue to support our vision as alumni.
