What Tomorrow's Leaders Are Learning in Africa Right Now

Tony Elumelu discusses a new program, the African Markets Internship Programme (AMIP), recently established by his self-named Nigeria-based foundation.

"At this moment, the AMIP is placing students from top African, European, and American business schools in highly structured programs with African companies. AMIP matches the unique skills of each intern with the particular needs of each host business to tackle their most pressing business problems. These include forging new business strategies, marketing new products, and developing African growth strategies. In this way, the interns will build practical knowledge while making a significant contribution to the firms' success."
