As the most innovative company in Africa, our purpose is to catalyze change in Africa and around the world by building the world's most innovative university. Our engaging learning experiences integrate technology, personalized learning, real world projects and entrepreneurial leadership to create innovators, game-changers, and problem-solvers. We ask our students to declare a 'mission' for their lives along with declaring an academic major. Our two undergraduate campuses—Mauritius and Rwanda—are well in operation, as is our graduate School of Business. Moving forward, we plan to scale across the continent and then around the world, ultimately developing 3 million entrepreneurs and leaders by 2035. In 2017, the New York Times described ALU as one of '8 places in the world where history is being made', while CNN described ALU as the 'Harvard of Africa'.

About The Career Development Team
The purpose of the Career Development Team at ALU is to design the systems that help our students make informed decisions on how to become the leaders that will transform Africa. We prepare students with the relevant skills and mindsets for the world of work; connect them to professional opportunities to practice their skills; and inform ALU's learning model with insights from employers on the future of work and our students' work readiness. We also partner with employers across Africa to ensure our graduates are set up for success with relevant skills and a year of real work experience as they launch into successful careers and leadership journeys after graduation.
While most of our students will likely take on professional jobs, we believe that Africa's success is also tied to building career support systems which help young leaders launch impactful alternative career paths in entrepreneurship, academia, public service, activism and art. At our core, our role is to help students understand themselves as professionals, understand the realities of the world, and then to successfully find their place in it.
About The Role
The Career Launch Manager will report directly to the Head of Career Development and work closely with the Student Placement Coordinator and Employer Partnerships Manager. You will be responsible for curating a diversity of career pathways, including jobs, graduate school and entrepreneurship opportunities for ALU students. You role will involve supporting our final year students and recent graduates to launch into successful career pathways after ALU and preparing them to drive and accelerate their careers thereafter.
About The International Business And Trade Major
Our International Business and Trade Degree Programme introduces students to foundational international business and trade skills through a "flipped classroom" model and challenges them to extend their learning through case challenges and live projects with corporate partners. It starts by providing students with foundational business skills, then adds complexity in the final years by understanding organisational contexts and international economic systems. Students gain valuable insight into innovative business through courses such as Entrepreneurship and New Venture Management, Cross Cultural Management, and Digital Strategy. Our academic programmes use project-based assessment, active and experiential learning, as well as peer-to-peer teaching to create a rigorous, engaging, and effective learning experience. ALU's International Business and Trade major introduces students to the knowledge and skills for launching and leading impactful businesses.
This role is full-time and will be based in Rwanda.
About The Role
The day to day of this role involves building and developing relationships with corporate clients by visiting them, understanding their needs, creating projects for our students to work on; as well as supporting and coaching students throughout their projects by building their skills. You will be acting as both a Project Manager with our Corporate Partners and a coach for our students. You will facilitate skills based workshops needed for our students to be able to deliver on their projects. You will also work closely with the team to provide support in designing experiences that enable students to push beyond the baseline of learning for the sake of learning. On a higher level, you will be involved in the co-creation of a vision and strategy for the programme, setting up the path that will allow students to extend the skills they learned to the outside world as the future leaders of the African Continent.
