Here are some highlights from Manji’s interview:
Who is Manji Cheto?
Manji is a passionate pan-Africanist who refuses to give up on the future of Africa. My goal in life is that by the time my life ends, I am able to say that I contributed to the social and economic transformation of Africa.
What led you to ALU School of Business?
I had looked at a number of MBA programmes across the world, but ALUSB stood out because it gave me access to people on the ground, professionals who are driving Africa’s economic transformation passionately and ethically. These are people who looked at capitalism as had been applied to Africa and said, “This is broken. We have to fix it. Making profit and doing good does not have to be mutually exclusive.”
Who is the ALUSB MBA for?
Firstly, if you are someone who considers yourself African – I think that definition is really multi-faceted – and you are tired of seeing the negatives of Africa, this programme is for you.
Secondly, if you are a person who truly believes in changing the world, then this programme is also for you. This is because, in just about 2050, Africa is going to be a huge part of the world’s population so we can’t talk about global in any context without talking about Africa.
This is the moment for you to be at a pivotal part of a global transformation, not just an African transformation.
What kind of impact should one expect from the ALUSB MBA?
If you apply to this programme, know that every single thing you do from day one is going to have a transformative impact on the lives of ordinary people in Africa and across the world.
