Founded in 2015, the African Leadership University (ALU) has rapidly become a trailblazer in redefining education across Africa. With visionary campuses situated in Mauritius and Rwanda, ALU's journey is characterized by a commitment to revolutionizing the traditional educational paradigm.

ALU's roots lie in a desire to empower its young individuals as catalyst for change. To achieve this vision of an institution that not only relays knowledge but also instills a sense of purpose and entrepreneurial spirit in its students, ALU embraces daring ideas and practices that focus on the future of ever-evolving education.

Over the years, ALU has gained recognition for its innovative curriculum, which focuses on practical skills, critical thinking, and problem-solving. The emphasis on ethical leadership sets a high standard, creating an environment where students are encouraged to make a positive impact on their communities.

As ALU continues to evolve, its impact resonates not only within the walls of its campuses but at a scale of the broader landscape of the continent, and the planet.

"We designed the 'Innovative Universities' global webinar not merely as conversation, but a one-of-a-kind assembly of forward-thinking scholars poised to reshape the educational landscape. This isn't just about what's new; it's about what's next.”

"Currently, there are no seminars exclusively devoted to innovation in higher education. We want to change that. Our webinar series are meant to give both creators of unusual institutions and idea collectors like us a space to discuss what's possible."
