Founder & President

He envisioned a new kind of educational model designed to meet the needs of executives, employees, and employers in Africa.

One that was executive-friendly, designed to take account of the peculiar needs, problems, and opportunities in business education in the African context; one that offered opportunities for executives and professionals to develop new theoretical and practical models for understanding, evaluating, and affecting the efficient and fair practice of business and management in Africa.
