Check out this interesting program to develop leadership in the effort to develop Africa. From the foundation:
The Tony Elumelu Foundation (TEF) is proud to introduce the 2012 alumni
class of its African Markets Internship Programme (AMIP).
AMIP is the Foundation’s flagship leadership development programme,
designed to give MBA students with a passion for African economic
development the opportunity to obtain first-hand experience with
high-growth businesses in emerging markets, develop essential skills,
and build a network in the fields of professional entrepreneurship and
business management throughout Africa.
The programme’s selected associates are MBA and MPA candidates enrolled
in or recently graduated from some of the most prestigious institutions
globally. From Africa, the institutions represented include Lagos
Business School, University of Ghana Business School, and the University
of Cape Town Business School; from North America, the institutions
include: the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, MIT’s Sloan
School of Business, Duke University’s Fuqua Business School, Yale
School of Management and seven others; from Europe: London Business
School and IESE, Spain. Our associates represent 14 countries: Nigeria,
Ethiopia, Cameroon, Togo, Ghana, Sierra Leone, Japan, China, India,
Ukraine, Denmark, the United Kingdom, Colombia, and the United States.
This year we were pleased to place our 28 associates with over 20 host
companies and private sector-facing government agencies around Africa,
ranging from the market regulatory authority in Nairobi, Kenya to a
holding company in Lusaka, Zambia.
Our associates participated in the highly structured 10-week programme
in which they gained, produced, and contributed to knowledge, processes,
and projects that helped to strengthen and grow enterprises and
contribute to job creation, economic growth and innovation in Africa.
Over the course of their internship, AMIP associates took on a wide
range of ventures; they developed national policy over the course of one
project, and in another, tackled an ambitious plan to create a
blueprint for a company’s treasury operations. The dedication,
professionalism, and resilience exhibited by our associates throughout
the programme have been both admirable and inspiring.
