Some details about the program:
• The fellowship will award up to eight African students per year with full tuition for the two-year program (approx. $140,000).
• Students will be required to work for two years in Africa after receiving their MBAs in a role that aids African development.
According to the GSB blog post, “Africa’s opportunities and challenges position this frontier market for growth. We believe Stanford GSB can contribute to Africa’s human and economic development by educating leaders committed to making an impact on the continent. This fellowship program is a critical step toward removing any financial barrier.”
