African Schools Unite
BUSINESS SCHOOLS from five African nations have signed a partnership agreement in which they commit to sharing resources, expertise, and research with the goal of boosting economic development in their countries. The newly formed African Academic Association on Entrepreneurship (AAAE) will promote and develop academic cooperation—particularly in the areas of entrepreneurship, small business development, innovation, and startups.

The American University of Cairo in Egypt will serve as the coordinator of the collaboration until a structured steering committee has been set up. The other participants are the University of Cape Town Graduate School of Business in South Africa, the University of Stellenbosch Business School in South Africa, Esca Maroc Ecole de Management of Casablanca in Morocco, the Lagos Business School in Nigeria, and Strathmore Business School of Nairobi.
