The world of conservation has become much more complex. Leaders must now create and execute viable business plans, lead large teams, manage private and public sector stakeholders, leverage technology and data, while creating environmental and economic return on donors’ investments. In addition to a firm conservation background, today`s conservation leaders need a broad range of managerial, financial, entrepreneurial and leadership skills that will enable them to make lasting impact. To meet this need, ALU runs a specialization of the ALU School of Business’ Executive MBA program for conservation leaders.
Who is this for?
The MBA for Conservation Leaders is designed for exceptional dynamic Africans who are passionate about our natural heritage and leadership potential. To apply for this programme, applicants must first apply and gain admission to the MBA via the standard ALUSB admissions process. Preliminary admissions requirements for the ALUSB MBA are:

Several full-tuition scholarships are available for rising leaders in the conservation industry, with exceptional leadership and academic track records. Applicants must first gain admission to the MBA programme, selecting the Conservation Scholarship application option in the application portal, once their MBA application is complete.
