Local Chapters

Africa Region


The BYU Management Society Africa Region is the main chapter that all the chapters in the Africa region are under.

The Africa Region focuses on leadership & professional development. Events are held virtually so that anyone in Africa can participate.

Additionally, we have many country specific chapters in Africa that host their own events from time to time. You can click on the chapter page links below to join a chapter and be made aware of any upcoming events. If you don’t see your country listed and are interested in helping to start a chapter in your country, please reach out to us at management_society@byu.edu.
