the African Leadership University is committed to doing more than simply tearing down the walls of your cubicle to create “the workplace of the future.” It is committed to tearing down the old-fashioned notion of top-down management, bringing in a collaborative, meaningful dialogue between its community – a dialogue that enriches the lives of everyone involved in the life-long learning experience at ALU.

Our Locations


ALU’s fresh approach to 21st-century education can now be experienced in two amazing locations: the fast-growing innovation hub of Kigali, Rwanda, and the island paradise of Mauritius. Both campuses offer ALU’s unique learning model alongside undergraduate degree programmes while delivering an immersive and transformative student experience through the ALU Alive programme.
