Scholarships

So Africans are the most underrepresented demographic in the top business schools in the world. Why is this so? Well for starters the cost. Paying for an international MBA from an African (Kenyan in my case) salary is tough. Very tough. Most African currencies are weaker than the US dollar so its just a dream for most to attend Harvard, Stanford, Wharton, INSEAD etc

That said there are scholarships for us Africans. Yup you heard me right.
