The programme curriculum revolves around advanced business-related problem solving, seminars and meetings with leading figures in the commercial, political and cultural fields, and on-site company visits. By providing the platform for knowledge sharing, experience exchange and quality networking, the programme aims to challenge traditional approaches, reinforce professional skills, deepen cross-cultural perspectives and unite the participants in a long-lasting and active global network.


You are a progressive and open-minded leader in your mid-career between the age of 25 and 45, looking to broaden your management skills and holistic approach to business. You are in a leading position within trade, industry or the public sector and aspire to sharpen your business mind, integrate sustainability in your business strategy and increase your global network of like-minded people. You are a citizen of Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania or Zambia and have a proficient command of both written and spoken English.
