GBSN isn't the only one with a fresh look on the web.  If you haven't seen it yet, I encourage you to check out the African Management Initiative's new website

They've got an updated look, but more importantly a lot more great information, research and tools for managers. The site is now an interactive hub that promotes and facilitates excellence in management for Africa.

From their new site:

"AMI aims to transform Africa through high-quality management. We work to promote management best practice and to expand access to high-quality and relevant management education and training. We started by conducting research to better understand the management gap, and to identify ways of closing it. You can find out what we discovered by downloading our report here."

While you're there check out this article Empowering future leaders: How to build an African business school and weigh in on what African management education should look like going forward.

From the article:

"One of AMI's goals is to expand access high-quality and practically relevant management education in Africa. Our research shows that Africa has too few management schools, and those that do exist are often out of step with the requirements of Africa's dynamic economies. It is clear that we need more management schools producing great African managers. We have therefore developed a blueprint for starting an entrepreneurial African management school on a lean budget, and with a focus on meeting the demands of Africa's labour markets."
