About 25 million students finish matric every year, and universities can only take 4 million of them... We need to expand the number of universities we have.

Fred Swaniker, founder of African Leadership Unleashed University

The graduates that we produce have the skills that employers are looking for, and will also be able to create jobs as entrepreneurs because we can't produce unemployed graduates.

We are leveraging technology to bring in the world's best professors from the greatest universities around the world.
