Oxford Africa Business Alliance

,,

A partnership between our students, alumni, faculty, and staff at Oxford Saïd, focused on driving our Africa Initiative.

The Africa Alliance provides a platform to stimulate a vigorous dialogue about business, investment and entrepreneurship in Africa. Through our faculty, 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. The Alliance was created to formalise and strengthen our Africa initiative, and to stimulate action in addition to generating ideas. It also brings African thought-leaders together to talk on the opportunities on the continent; and connects members with other African related networks and groups. 

The Continent is teeming with talent; and one of my goals is to attract the most diverse group of African MBA students that Oxford Saïd has ever had.

Our committee

Each year, we appoint a committee made up of Oxford MBA students with a passion for Africa. The 2022/2023 committee is led and supported by staff and academics within the School. 

I am a proud African, passionate about the economic development of Africa & my aim is for the Alliance to be a collaborative initiative that brings together bright minds to discuss & unravel opportunities in business and entrepreneurship in Africa.

Africa: A sustainable path to prosperity?

Our next Forum will be 10 March 2023 where we will delve into discussions focused on a sustainable transition and climate change. Our sessions will focus on identifying sectors which can play a leading role in addressing how to create a sustainable path to prosperity, how we fund this transition and how African leaders can spearhead their own narrative.

The one day forum will be hybrid delivery - in-person at Oxford Saïd and all sessions live streamed.

I hope to assist in embedding and expanding the Africa initiative to ensure future African candidates receive the same or even better opportunities to be apart of the Oxford Saïd community.
