Africa MBA Indaba


Welcome to the 2nd Africa MBA Indaba.

Africa MBA Indaba – The Business School Alumni Conference.



About us



The mission of the Africa MBA Indaba is to bring together alumni from prestigious business schools that are making a big impact across Africa. Whether you are a corporate executive, investor, entrepreneur, or driving change through a social enterprise, you will be among a select group of very successful fellow business school alumni.

We are convinced that if the best business school alumni gather together, new businesses will be formed, corporate partnerships established, and investments made that will lead to success for all that attend the conference.

At the MBA Indaba you will meet new clients for your company, potential investors and enhance your career through professional development seminars and panels. There will also be a Career Fair for those looking for new opportunities and a Business School Expo for individuals planning to attend business school. The career fair will have over 20 companies exhibiting and interacting with delegates. This year’s confirmed business schools include Harvard, Oxford Said, Stellenbosch, HEC (Paris), Henley, Hong Kong Univ., GIBS, Duke Fuqua, Nanyang (Singapore), Columbia, Yale, I.E. Spain, Georgetown, Milpark, Mancosa, SOAS Univ. of London, Edinburgh, U. of Free State, North West Univ., Nelson Mandela U. and the African Leadership University. The Graduate Management Admissions Council, the administrators of the GMAT exam, will also be in attendance.
