New Report Explores State of Management Education in Africa

Posted By Samara Tu , Wednesday, September 02, 2015

The Association of African Business Schools and the Association of MBAs released a detailed report called, “Game-changing, trend-setting: Collective voices on African management education, today and tomorrow.” The report explores the current state of management education in Africa from an African viewpoint, and discusses improvements to better meet students’ needs and prepare them for leadership and entrepreneurship.

As students in Africa are becoming more focused on entrepreneurship, the report explains that management education in Africa should be more focused on shaping the next generation of leaders, rather than developing the next generation of managers.

The report highlights challenges business schools in Africa have in meeting these demands, both culturally and financially, and the implications they may have if not addressed. Nevertheless, management education in Africa has so far positively affected the continent as Africa emerges as a continent to be appreciated for its wealth of opportunities.
