Exposure to African business

The ABF gives American business professionals hands-on experience in the African business environment. Fellows learn first-hand how business is done in Africa and develop both the hard and soft skills needed to achieve success on the continent.

 

 

CROSS-CULTURAL NETWORKS

Fellows work closely with their African colleagues, developing relationships that will last beyond the six-month placement. As a small group, the fellows also have opportunities to build relationships with one another both during fellowship experience and as members of the alumni community.

 

Professional growth & impact:

Fellows work on critical projects, defined in advance by the placement companies [highlight], that allow them to apply their business expertise and further refine their skills.
