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 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. 


Overview

We have developed this "One Africa" web page to help you grow day by day and achieve your highest potential. In his book, "The World is Flat", Thomas L. Friedman analyzed globalization and suggested the world has a more level playing field for commerce (except for labor), to have equal opportunity. The BYU-Management Society is committed to helping you improve your opportunities. We believe in the saying, "There are dozens of rules for success, but none of them work, unless you do!"

If you don't access these resources, they cannot help you. However, if you utilize these resources, they WILL help you. Please prayerfully consider how to leverage these resources to accelerate your career.

Work Readiness Guide

The Work Readiness Guide covers areas on attitudes, behavior, soft skills, and professional skills a learner needs to know to enhance their current job or before entering a new job. It includes impactful short videos that you should watch and note key principles to enhance your professionalism and ability to make money. This document is not a job search file, but it will help you prepare yourself for better opportunities in life.

Career Development Webinars

The BYU-Management Society Africa Region will be co-hosting Career Development Webinars with the Skep Foundation. The purpose of these webinars is to provide you access to accomplished professionals on a range of topics (e.g. digital/virtual jobs, human capital development, etc.). Presenters will come from both Africa and America and you will gain industry insights and tips for excelling in specific disciplines. In addition to the webinars, we are exploring ways to create networking communities with increased exposure to employers.
