The University of Nairobi School of Business and Strathmore Business School co-hosted the 3rd European Foundation of Management Development (EFMD) Africa Conference that drew participants from local and international top business schools. The theme for the conference was “Sustainable Business Education Appropriate for Africa.”
Dr. Manu Chandaria, Chairman, Comcraft Group, challenged participants to instill business and entrepreneurial skills in their business students and to equip them to fill glaring gaps in Africa’s business environment. In his presentation on ‘The role of business schools in Africa’, Dr. Chandaria shared his family’s business success story and the role education plays in business. His passion for entrepreneurship is felt through the Chandaria Foundation which is sponsoring innovation and incubation centres and setting up business schools in Kenya.
