African Leadership University (ALU) offers a variety of bachelor degree programmes designed to address the gap between education and the real world by developing a curriculum that addresses the industry needs of our continent. We challenge you to declare a “mission” for your life, not just an academic “major”. ALU will expose you to the grand challenges and opportunities of our time, and work with you to define how you want to solve these problems and capture emerging opportunities. All our degree programmes have been crafted by curating some of the best content from across the world delivered through our innovative Learning Model. In addition to your degree programme, your learning will be supplemented by an African Studies course that puts your learning in the African and global context- working towards the mission for your life.
