April 12, 2014

Welcome

The Kellogg School of Management’s Africa Business Club looks forward to hosting you on April 12, 2014 at our 5th Africa Business Conference. This year’s theme Navigating Africa: A Practical Guide To Doing Business On The Continent, recognizes the need to not only tell the African story but provide participants with practical ideas on grasping the opportunities and navigating the challenges inherent in successfully conducting business on the continent.

The Kellogg Africa Business Conference has become one of the most anticipated student-led conferences at Kellogg, as well as one of the premier Africa Business Conferences amongst top business schools around the world. It provides a forum for interactive learning as it brings thought and policy leaders together with students to exchange ideas and offer fresh perspectives on the opportunities in Africa.

We have put together a program featuring inspirational keynote speakers, vibrant panel discussions with leading technology innovators and entrepreneurs and a debate examining Africa’s growing relationship with China. It is our hope that you find value in your conference experience, not only through our programming, but also through the connections you make throughout the weekend.

We look forward to welcoming you to Evanston in April!
