Agence Française de Développement (AFD) The goal of LeAD Campus 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. The LeAD Campus programme equips high-potential Africans with the skills to develop their leadership, their vision and their business.
This bilingual certificate-awarding training programme lasts for 6 months. The programme is a co-development of 4 African and French institutions. It is overseen and implemented in partnership with business operating on the African continent. Whether you come from the north, south, east or west of the African continent, from an English or French speaking country and work in the private or the public sector, LeAD Campus is for you.
Duration of the training programme: 6 months including 15 days of on-site training and remote training (e-learning, distant mentorship, development of the individual executive project).
Agence Française de Développement (AFD) For the 4th consecutive year, LeAD Campus is launching its recruitment drive for high-potential Africans. Entrepreneurs, executives or managers from the private, public and associative sectors, LeAD Campus is perfect for you! The deadline for applications is January 31, 2019.
Why LeAD Campus? Because today, Africa is now, more than ever, an important issue for the future! Investment projects continue to grow on the continent—one third of countries have growth above 6%. But the potential is in its human capital, which makes it vital to provide these human resources, men and women, the necessary skills to better handle opportunities of tomorrow.
To meet these needs, Science Po Executive Education, University of Cape Town, the Institut Supérieur de Management de Dakar and the AFD developed the LeAD Campus 3 years ago. This training program aims to recruit 35 high potential individuals from across Africa, working with them to develop their vision, skills, businesses and capacity to innovate. This accelerated 6-month training program, compatible with ongoing professional activities, allows the participants to develop not only their leadership but also reinforce their understanding of business fundamentals in the African context.
