Launch of LeAd Campus, April 4th 2016 [fr]
25 leaders from the African private sector from 14 countries in Africa will be reunited for a programme on three Campuses: Cape Town, Dakar and Paris!
Africa is the continent of the 21st century and offers a multitude of opportunities. The goal of LeAD Campus (‘Leaders pour l’Afrique de Demain’) is to identify the current and future leaders of Africa, develop their skills and projects so to help them contribute to a sustainable and inclusive growth across the continent.
Launched by the French-African Foundation for Growth, AfricaFrance and led by African businesses and corporations, the certificate awarding programme is coordinated by four African and French institutions: Sciences Po (France), the Higher Institute of Management in Dakar (Senegal), the Graduate School of Development Policy and Practice (GSDPP) of the University of Cape Town (South Africa) as well as the CEFEB, the corporate university of the French Development Agency (AFD).
LeAd Campus started on April 4th 2016 in Cape Town, South Africa. Consul of France in Cape Town Xavier d’Argoeuves, AFD Regional Director Martha Stein-Sochas, Vice Chancellor of the University of Cape Town (UCT), Prof. Klopper, the Head of the International Academic Programmes Office of UCP, Prof. Evance Kalula and Science Po project Manager Gloria Ba attended the evening launch dinner.
This innovative program alternates between workshops and distance learning.
To affirm one’s expertise, develop one’s innovative capacities, build and make one’s professional project grow, integrate social and environmental issues as a new relay for company transformation: these are the challenges the 25 participants of this first session will have to face.
