An international business school in every sense of the word, Hult has a student body made up of over 160 nationalities and six campuses worldwide. Whether you want to benefit from London’s status as a European business capital, immerse yourself in the tech startup culture of San Francisco or gain valuable insights into the booming Chinese economy in Shanghai, Hult has the program for you. Once you’ve chosen the campus where you’ll study your core modules, you’ll also have the opportunity to study electives at any Hult location across the world. With further campuses in Boston, Dubai and New York, Hult graduates emerge from their MBA program with an unmatched global business perspective.

Hult believe that a business school should give you more than just a degree. An integral part of your course here will be focused on solving real-world problems, ensuring that you are able to immediately put theory into practice when employers come calling.

The MBA programs on offer at Hult are flexible, immersive and tailored to the 21st century. The Global One-Year MBA is a presencial course that you can study at one of six locations: Boston, Dubai, London, New York, San Francisco or Shanghai. For those looking for minimal disruption to their home and work life, the Live Online MBA and Global Part-Time Executive MBA can be studied entirely online with optional electives at a Hult campus. Yet all the MBA programs here provide the same world-class teaching, international experience and employer value that set Hult graduates apart from the rest.

Frequently Asked Questions

How is the MBA program structured?

ALUSB’s 20-month MBA programme uses technology to leapfrog traditional MBA learning models. Rather than a residential program that takes students out of the workforce for as much as two years and emphasizes theoretical approaches, the ALUSB MBA uses a cutting-edge ‘flipped’ educational model that emphasizes student-centered, participatory learning based on real-world issues. Instead of simply memorizing frameworks and formulae, ALUSB MBA students will gain key problem-solving, strategic-thinking, communication, and leadership skills—as well as a peer network drawn from countries across the continent.

What are the admission requirements?

Applicants will generally have a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution of higher learning and have demonstrated high academic achievement in their programme. In addition, applicants should have a minimum of five years work experience and preferably some management experience.

How does the ideal MBA candidate look like?

Candidates are generally expected to have 6 to 10 years of work experience and are ideally looking to propel themselves into high impact careers by rapidly becoming senior leaders within their organization. Additionally, candidates must demonstrate a passion for doing business across the African continent and must have a strong desire to develop a global perspective.

Do I need reference letters to apply to the ALU MBA?

Yes. You will need 2 reference letters from people who can give an accurate, detailed description of your work experience, character and leadership abilities. One of the letters must come from your supervisor at your current or former place of work. The second letter can come from a supervisor or a colleague.

Do I need to take the GMAT or GRE?

Simply, no, we do not require that you take the GMAT or GRE exams before applying.

What is the tuition fee?

The ALUSB MBA costs $15,000 per-year ($30,000 total), which includes tuition fees for online courses and costs of all in-person workshops. Travel and accommodation costs during in-person workshops are not included in this figure.

Does ALU offer financial aid?

We understand that every student’s financial situation is different, and we are committed to working with every admitted student to try to organize available sources of financing in a way that makes it possible for them to attend the ALUSB MBA.

What is the language of instruction at ALU?

All courses are offered in English.

Is ALU SB accredited?

The ALUSB MBA is awarded by ALU Rwanda and is accredited by Rwanda’s Higher Education Council.

Which universities appear on the final certificate?

The MBA degree will be awarded by the African Leadership University School of Business (ALUSB), which is the school that will appear on the degree certificate. While ALUSB is collaborating with other institutions to deliver a number of the online courses in the ALU MBA programme, the bulk of the degree will be designed and delivered by ALUSB, consistent with our commitment to creating a degree that is as relevant as possible to African business leaders. As such, while the ALU MBA will provide alumni status at ALU and access to a number of ALU-related networks (ALU alumni; the African Leadership Network), the MBA degree will not confer special status (alumni or other) at the other institutions.
