Programme for African Leadership

-To support ethical leadership for development

The London School of Economics launches an innovative three week leadership development programme in March 2012, designed specifically for high-achievers from across Africa. Participants will attend an intensive executive training course in London where they will benefit from high quality teaching in relevant subjects including globalisation and development by staff from the LSE and elsewhere. Participants will later be invited to an annual forum in Africa to help refresh their skills and form leadership networks across the continent. This programme, for Africa’s most dynamic leaders, will provide access to high level academic thinking and policy ideas from around the world in order that leadership lessons are taken back to organisations and communities.The Programme has been generously supported by LSE alumnus, Firoz Lalji, and his wife Najma.
