New Initiatives

Management Education and Research Consortium

GRAVITAS recently launched an initiative to create locally-based, Harvard Business School-style case studies, to be used by African business schools and other schools that are members of the Global Business School Network. The intent is to create local content and reflect local realities and protagonists choices that are relevant to business school students on the Continent. Phase I of this initiative will focus on West African case studies; Phase II will focus on East Africa and lastly, Phase III is to focus on Southern Africa. It is hoped that these cases will be exchanged among schools to facilitate the understanding of cross-cultural issues and assist in the growth of intra-continental business activities (Franco-Anglo-Luso).

PHASE 1 Completion: Casebook (French - PDF)
