Benefits of  Harvard Business School African Network

Alumni of Harvard Business School online and other executive certifications at Harvard Business School do not qualify for Harvard Business School alumni status. This does not provide potential networking, collaboration and other opportunities for professionals who have spent time and money completing these programmes.

There is a gaping vacuum, especially for Africans who are natural networkers and social people.

Harvard Business School African Network is a platform focused on African alumni of  Harvard Business School Online, created to solve this problem in various ways.

  1. Broadened African Network: Virtual networking will allow members to connect with a diverse range of African professionals across the globe. This diversity can lead to new perspectives, ideas, and strategies.
  2. Accessibility: Members can participate in virtual networking with other Africans regardless of geographical location. This ensures that opportunities for professional advancement and business connections are available to everyone, not just those who can physically attend Connext events.
