As part of its commitment to provide training and capacity building in the developing world, the University of Notre Dame will welcome 25 African leaders for business and entrepreneurship training this summer. The Coca-Cola Foundation has awarded Notre Dame a $250,000 five-year grant to help implement the program, which builds on a pilot program held at Notre Dame in 2012.
The University of Notre Dame is an institutional partner in the Washington Fellowship Program, the flagship program of President Obama’s Young African Leaders Initiative. The training program will be led by the faculty and staff from the University of Notre Dame’s Mendoza College of Business Nonprofit Executive Education Program, supported by the Notre Dame Initiative for Global Development (NDIGD), the Kellogg Institute for International Studies’ Ford Family Program in Human Development Studies and Solidarity, and the University’s Engineering, Science, Technology and Entrepreneurship Excellence Masters (ESTEEM) program.
