As part of our core curriculum, all students in the two-year program take an Entrepreneurial Leadership (EL) class.
The EL program at A is designed to build the interpersonal and leadership skills (project management, communication, collaboration, problem-solving, reflection, values and ethics, peer feedback) that are essential for future agents of positive change.
Through this program, students develop the mindset, approach, and skills necessary to be entrepreneurial leaders on the African continent and beyond. The syllabus includes a variety of teaching methods, including team-based design challenges, guest speakers, mini-lectures, simulations and games, case studies and experiential learning.
The Student Enterprise Program (SEP) is a cornerstone of the ALA experience that sees second year ALA students running businesses or non-profit organizations for a full year, providing them with hands-on training in leadership, entrepreneurship and management and preparing them to pursue leadership and entrepreneurial opportunities on the continent.
