Generation Africa

Open up Africa’s golden opportunities for business

Generation Africa is a premium executive certificate for senior executives and entrepreneurs who wish to expand and diversify their global footprint. Blending a financial, legal, and cultural approach, it will either sharpen your business development skills or entrepreneurial spirit towards the fastest-growing and most dynamic continent in the world: Africa. With a young and growing urbanized population, abundant natural resources and a rapidly growing middle class, the continent generates many growing business opportunities.

Join a community of global leaders and experts connected to Africa

ESSEC Business School has strong ties and in-depth expertise in Africa and our African campus, based in Rabat (Morocco) has opened its doors in 2017. We have since gained countless business experiences throughout the five African subregions, building bridges between the continent and the rest of the world. In doing so, our world-school with French roots has considerably deepened its international stature in combination with our Paris and Singapore campuses.

Access unique insights and tailored advice from the field

With Generation Africa, we are taking the next step forward with an ambitious program endowed with first class teachers and experts, country-specific case studies and tailored deliverables, demonstrating just how important a good understanding of the field, business etiquette, regulatory and economic practices is, and allowing to discover Africa’s potential and seize new business opportunities for each geographical area of the continent.
