Apply Now for the Second Edition of “This is How I Moved my #BusinessForward” Campaign

Business Forward, the knowledge portal of AUC School of Business, is starting off 2022 running a very exciting digital campaign that calls for the participation of the business community.

In recent years, and even more accelerated by COVID-19, there is a movement emphasizing the purpose and role of business in society to create values, ensure sustainable development, diversity, and stakeholder interests. However, in Egypt and this part of the world, literature about responsible business or corporate responsibility and documentation of its practice is very limited. It is often mistakenly associated with charity, philanthropy and public relations.

In this edition of “This is How I Moved my #BusinessForward”, in partnership with The Coca Cola Company and the Commercial International Bank (CIB), the objective is to build the narrative and awareness about corporate responsibility, highlighting positive examples that demonstrate responsible business conduct embedded in the vision and day-to-day operations of the business, rather than a one-off act.

Join to showcase how your business or company helped promote corporate responsibility over the past year. The call for participation is open until February 28, 2022. The campaign ends with the audience voting on the most inspiring stories and an awards ceremony in March 2022.

Bursaries Now Offered to Students Wanting to Specialize in Electricity at WBS

In response to South Africa’s ongoing power woes, Wits Business School (WBS) has introduced a new stream in its existing Postgraduate Diploma (PGDip) in Management in the field of Energy Leadership which offers a specialisation in electricity.

Further good news is that the school, through its partnership with the South African-German Energy Programme and Capacitates for the Energy Transition (SAGEN- CET),  a programme implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH on behalf of the German Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), is offering a limited number of bursaries for students who choose the electricity stream courses as part of their PGDip at WBS.  The bursaries will cover 100% of the academic fees for the seven electricity orientated courses. 

The programme also comprises four core (compulsory) modules which encompass an overview of energy value chains, issues of environmental sustainability, leadership fundamentals and financial modelling.

“We are excited to be able to offer these bursaries for our PGDip students for the year 2022, thanks to our partnership with GIZ. It is critical that we ensure a pipeline of skilled leaders who have an in-depth understanding of the electricity supply and distribution industries to take African energy into the sustainable future,” says Professor Rod Crompton, Adjunct Professor at the African Energy Leadership Centre (AELC) at WBS.

Candidates wishing to complete the electricity electives for non-degree purposes are also eligible to apply for the bursary.

WBS is urging anyone interested in applying for the bursary to do so as soon as possible. The programme commences in early 2022.

GBSN-INSEAD Africa Faculty Fellowship

The 4th Industrial Revolution and the pandemic have changed the way we work and live and has brought on a new normal in Africa and across the globe. Education is an essential tool to equip us to mitigate the challenges we will face.

In its effort to promote the continual improvement in quality learning and research across business schools in Africa, GBSN and INSEAD

are joining forces to offer a GBSN-INSEAD Africa Faculty Fellowship designed for educators who are committed to advancing the quality of their learning and teaching. The Fellowship is designed to support African faculty members from GBSN member schools to further develop their teaching practice. During the Fellowship, the Fellow will work with an INSEAD Faculty member(s) to develop a teaching resource or tool that can be brought back to their home institution and used in the classroom.

Through the Fellowship’s experience, activates and deliverables, they will help advance the quality of business and management education in their respective country. This fellowship is open to one faculty member from an African business school that is a member of GBSN and will take place in the academic year 2022.

Terms of the Fellowship

Beyond pursuing their own projects, the Fellows will be expected to attend research seminars and workshops, to sit in on class sessions at the invitation of faculty, to interact with faculty, administrative staff, and students, and to serve as a guest speaker in class if requested. This experience should be seen as an opportunity for both personal and institutional development. Upon returning home, the Fellow will be expected to share their learnings, strategies, and teaching tools with their home institution, and to maintain a relationship with the INSEAD Africa Initiative. Finally, the Fellow will be asked to write a follow-up report about their experience with the GBSN-INSEAD Fellowship, highlighting key learnings and activities. The report will be published on the GBSN website, and possibly on relevant INSEAD websites.

  • Time and work will be spread across 12 months
  • Majority of the Fellowship work will be conducted virtually
  • Potential for on-campus visit with sponsoring Faculty on INSEAD’s campus (Fontainebleau or Singapore). Travel is subject to COVID-19 restrictions and availability.
  • Other ancillary expenses such as food and local transportation may be covered by INSEAD, under specific mutual agreement between INSEAD and the Fellow.

  3. a letter of support from the Dean or Director of their institution. The letter should explain the suitability of the candidate for the Fellowship and how the institution expects to benefit from the Fellow’s engagement with INSEAD.

A selection committee of INSEAD faculty members, put together by the INSEAD Africa Initiative, will review each submitted application package and shortlisted candidates will move onto the Interview Phase.

Virtual Interviews

Virtual interviews will be scheduled with the selected top applicants. The interviews are designed as a way for the INSEAD Africa Initiative Selection Committee to learn more about the applicant’s background, research, experience, desired learnings and objectives during the Fellowship as well as scheduling, timeline and availability. A major part of the selection will consider how the applicant plans to bring back value and implement the Fellowship deliverables across its home institution.
