The Africa Business Club is a student-run organization at the Harvard Business School. We provide services and resources for African students, students who've worked in Africa and any student with a professional or cultural interest in Africa. We also promote the engagement of the African business community with Harvard Business School.
The HBS Africa Business Club, founded on November 12, 1997, is dedicated to increasing the awareness of business opportunities on the African continent. Our activities are professional, educational and social in nature, and are open to all members of the Harvard community as well as the broader young professional African network though our annual conference.
Every year, the Africa Business Club hosts the largest African student-run conference, bringing together preeminent keynote speakers, expert panelists, and approximately 1000 passionate students and professionals from across the globe to discuss and debate important topics on business in Africa. This highly acclaimed event includes panel sessions, networking events, a fashion show, prospective students' day, and a banquet.
