Fellows must agree to return to Africa within two years of graduating from the Stanford business school and work for a business, government agency, or nonprofit organization for a least two consecutive years.

Garth Saloner, dean of the Graduate School of Business at Stanford, stated, “We are committed to supporting the education of promising high-potential leaders who will make a difference in the continent’s future. Moreover, African students in our program provide direct insight into an emerging global economy that is increasingly powerful in business.”
