African Leadership University opens second campusAtlanta Black Star.
The first campus opened in Mauritius in 2015. The African Leadership University or ALU prides itself on innovative teaching and learning, delivering content through a flipped classroom model. Beyond just preparing students for work, ALU hopes to mould leaders who will take up the mantle of solving some of the greatest challenges facing Africa today. To this end, one of the programmes being offered at ALU’s Rwanda campus is a ‘Global Challenges’ degree.
The idea of ‘Global Challenges’ is that it promotes mission-driven learning, allowing students to align their learning around a problem they want to solve. “Ultimately, we want students to have a sense of their own mission, aligned with their purpose in life. And we have formalised this idea in a degree,” ALU founder Fred Swaniker told Atlanta Black Star.
