About African Leadership Group

The African Leadership University is at the beginning of a rapid growth spurt, expanding its student numbers, course offerings, and campus locations. Over the next 5-­7 years, it expects its student numbers to grow from the current 360 (on one campus) to over 25,000 (distributed on perhaps 6-­8 campuses and in the 'cloud’). Despite this multi-­campus location, ALU seeks to remain "one university”, with students being able to move seamlessly from one campus to another, using one integrated technology platform for learning, payments, and all other aspects of interaction as they learn, live, and play at ALU.
