African Leadership University

Multiple locations
By integrating students’ learning with the real world, empowering students to take ownership of their own learning, equipping each student to think entrepreneurially, and employing the most engaging and inspiring teaching methods, ALU is pioneering a new take on higher education and leadership development.


ALU is a network of world-class tertiary education institutions whose mission is to produce 3 million young African leaders over the next 50 years. ALU’s first campus was inaugurated in September 2015 in Mauritius and is known as African Leadership College. It's second campus was inaugurated in September 2017 in Kigali Heights, Rwanda. 


  • ALU is pioneering a fresh approach to higher education in the 21st century; offering accredited undergraduate, postgraduate and executive education programmes in a unique and imaginative way.
  • ALU develops skills in its graduates to ensure they will remain relevant even as the world changes. It also develops its students intellectually, provides them with work experience, and develops their “whole” being. 


Most universities start speaking to their graduates to think about life after graduation in their final year of the program. It is an unnerving position to be in – asking deep reflective questions about yourself to understand your strengths and interests – and also have to plan for the next step applying for opportunities with little credibility.

At ALU, our students begin their career development journey from day 1, using their 4 years at university to lay the right foundations for their 40 year careers after graduation.
