From the start, we’ve been on a mission to bring the “university of the future” to the world — a place where students declare missions not majors, where real-world experience takes precedence over theoretical classroom lectures, and where learning how to learn has replaced learning facts and figures. Today, ALU is on its way to helping unleash the human potential of a new generation of ethical and entrepreneurial leaders — and in the process, unlock a new era of prosperity and opportunity for Africa and beyond unlike the world has ever seen.
Our mission is not going unnoticed. CNN described ALU — which has campuses in Mauritius and Rwanda — as “The Harvard of Africa;” Fast Company ranked ALU one of the 50 most innovative organisations in the world and the most innovative endeavour in Africa; and The New York Times recognised ALU as one of the eight places in the world “where history is being made.”
You will be responsible for implementing best-in-class systems and controls to ensure that ALU operates ethically, efficiently and cost-effectively. You will be working in a mission-driven environment, with passionate and interesting people. You will have opportunities for both personal and professional growth, and to work outside of your roles on other projects you are passionate about. ALU team members work hard but have a lot of flexibility and a great working environment.
The African Leadership University is re-imagining university education for the 21st century by applying an innovative approach to tertiary education. Dubbed by CNN as “the Harvard of Africa”, ALU is leveraging modern pedagogy, advanced education technology and global partnerships with leading employers and universities, to provide a deeply engaging learning experience. ALU offers a fresh and interdisciplinary approach to education in a broad range of subjects such as sciences, engineering, social sciences and business.
The scalable, high-quality network of campuses will develop 3 million leaders across the world by 2060. The first ALU campus is up and running with 300 students on the beautiful island of Mauritius. The second campus just opened in Rwanda and from there ALU plans to scale across Africa initially, and eventually throughout the world.
