‘Transforming Leadership for 21st Century Africa’, is a partnership bringing together Aga Khan University Graduate School of Media Communication (AKU GSMC), the Aga Khan Foundation and the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University.
Speaking at the signing of an historic Memorandum of Understanding in Cambridge, Massachusetts on Monday, AKU GSMC Founding Dean Michael Meyer said the programme comes at a better time when the world is rapidly changing and in need of leaders to better lead their organizations.
“We are proud to bring to Nairobi an extraordinary opportunity for African executives to sharpen two of the most vital skills needed to better lead their organizations – and Africa itself – in our increasingly complex and rapidly changing world,” said Mr Meyer.
The agreement brings together two world class courses where the first focuses on executive education and training for officials from government, civil society, private sector and the media.
