I. Overview

The Africa-America Institute (AAI), in partnership with The Coca Cola Africa Foundation (TCCAF), has launched the Transformational Leadership Program (TLP) to enhance professional management skills and leadership in Africa. This multi-year program offers non-degree professional development and business degree training programs to African managers in Africa-based NGOs working in the fields of health, education, environment and entrepreneurship. TLP currently involves the following organisations (Program Partners):

  • The Coca-Cola Africa Foundation - As the TLP sponsor and lead private sector Program Partner, TCCAF leverages its industry contacts to position the TLP as a "best-in-class" executive management and leadership skills development progam designed not merely to provide training and credentials to individual participants but also to confer far-reaching benefits to the organisations and communities in which they function.
  • The Aresty Institute of Executive Education at The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania (Philadelphia, USA), offers year-round executive management courses in management, leadership, marketing and finance.
  • United States International University (Nairobi, Kenya), offers a One-Year Executive Masters of Science in Management and Organisational Development (EMOD) designed to provide advanced skills in selected business and management disciplines, including practical experience in the application of those skills in the context of the overall dynamics of organisations.
  • The Center for Enterprise Development Services (EDS) of Pan-African University (Lagos, Nigeria) offers a Certificate of Entrepreneurial Management (CEM) designed to develop productive and sustainable SMEs. The Center also offers an NGO variant of the certificate program titled Social Sector Management (SSM).
  • The Africa-America Institute (AAI) - Working in close consultation with the Program Partners, AAI administers the program: advertising, selecting and enrolling the participants, facilitating regular communication between the program partners and participants; coordinating the orientation and enrichment components; providing logistical support; managing the program funding; serving as the clearinghouse for program information; monitoring each program participant's progress; and overseeing program evaluations and assessments.
