Successful leaders must possess an integrative leadership approach, entrepreneurial acumen, the capacity to contemplate and execute strategic plans, and the skill to collaborate with individuals from diverse professional and personal backgrounds.Our programmes stand out because we prioritize the amalgamation of personal, professional, and organizational development; a central theme is woven throughout our program design and implementation.

Family-owned Business Programmes
"Transforming & evolving the narrative of Africa’s Family-Owned Business Enterprises and the socio-economic landscapes they impact.”
Family-Owned Businesses are important to the region’s economic landscape, comprising a staggering 76% of all companies in the EAC and employing over 78% of the workforce. Unfortunately, less than 16% of these businesses have a solid succession plan or strong family and business governance, which is why our commitment to their success is unwavering.

USIU-Africa’s executive education programmes will equip these family businesses with the knowledge and tools they need to thrive in today’s global marketplace.

USIU-Africa provides four unique programmes necessary to educate family businesses on setting up governance models for growth and sustainability and provide non-family businesses and advisors on how to partner successfully with family businesses.
