News for AABS Connect Conference 2017

Africa is calling! - Nada Biaz, Groupe ISCAE

Published: 2017-05-12

The growing needs in Africa in terms of economic and social development are one of the main challenges that our nations are facing on a regular basis. Likewise, meeting the predicaments requires a new level of understanding, and education in this regard is considered as a consistent impetus.

For many decades, this fact was highlighted and not further detailed. Our continent has suffered from misconception and de facto the business model has failed to absorb shocks and systemic instabilities.



African Business Schools as Advocates for Better Business – Dr Ali Elquammah, HEM Business School

Published: 2017-05-01

Africa is the world's youngest continent, as the proportion of youth among the region's total popoulation is higher than in any other continent. It has the fastest-growing and most youthful population in the world where 60% of it is under the age of 24. These statistics present a serious challenge (or may be real opportunities). The question is: Can African Higher Education Institutions including business schools seize the opportunities being presented to them and try to have an impact by giving good quality and pertinent training programs?



AABS Connect to Go Ahead in Cairo Despite Attacks

Published: 2017-04-10

In light of the terror attacks that have been recently reported in Egypt, the Association of African Business Schools and The American University in Cairo School of Business would like to assure all delegates about their safety during the conference.

The AUC SOB in New Cairo Campus is located in the safest and most protected area in Cairo. The campus is highly secured. The Westin Hotel is 5 minutes by car from the campus and both are 25 minutes from Cairo Airport (in case there is an emergency).

Please do not be discouraged by the unfortunate events as the conference will still take place. We will keep in touch with further information on how delegates can stay safe, places to avoid, etc and an official press statement will be made available to all those attending and wish to attend the Connect conference.

Online registrations are still open until Friday 05 May. Should you have any questions or concerns please contact the AABS Secretariat.
