Workshop 8 - Stellenbosch University: Responsible Management Education For Africa
Responsible management education has gained much ground in North America and Europe. The same is unfortunately not the case in Africa. Whilst the continent has 1.1 billion people, with a median age of 19.7, it only has 82 MBA programmes, concentrated in South Africa, Uganda, Kenya, and Egypt. There are 9 AMBA, 4 EQUIS and 4 AACSB accreditations on the continent; 23 PRME signatories (from a total of 651); 3 GRLI partners (from a total of 48); and 5 ABIS members (from a total of more than 130). The University of Stellenbosch Business School is the only one appearing in all these categories. This situation is untenable for a continent faced with serious sustainable development challenges and a dire need for ethical and effective leadership. A concerted effort is necessary to upscale responsible management in Africa and ABIS and its associated stakeholders have a role to play in this regard
Partner we are looking for: Institutions to contribute to the further development of the proposal and people with the expertise to help with project development and roll-out.
Framework – Funding: Erasmus + - Capacity building in Higher Education
