Overview

We are looking for someone with an understanding of, as well as a passion and deep sense of empathy for youth development.

You need to have experience counselling students and crafting and delivering psycho-social programs to support them in their learning journey.

ABOUT ALU

As the most innovative company in Africa, our purpose is to catalyze change in Africa and around the world by building the world’s most innovative university. Our engaging learning experiences integrate technology, personalized learning, real world projects and entrepreneurial leadership to create innovators, game-changers, and problem-solvers. We ask our students to declare a ‘mission’ for their lives along with declaring an academic major. Our two undergraduate campuses—Mauritius and Rwanda—are well in operation, as is our graduate School of Business. Moving forward, we plan to scale across the continent and then around the world, ultimately developing 3 million entrepreneurs and leaders by 2035. In 2017, the New York Times described ALU as one of ‘8 places in the world where history is being made’, while CNN described ALU as the ‘Harvard of Africa’.

ABOUT THE STUDENT LIFE TEAM

Our learning philosophy at African Leadership University can be summarized through the acronym ASHIP for we believe that learning should be active, social, holistic, integrated and personal. Put differently, learning is centered around the student’s own life. What happens in our students’ day-to-day, within and outside of the classroom, contributes equally to their learning experience. The Student Life (SL) team at ALU is in charge of every aspect of the student’s life. We ensure our students’ overall wellness through the ALU Alive program which encompasses various support systems, programs and activities which promote physical, mental and emotional well-being.

This person will be required to counsel students (and sometimes staff), provide psycho-educational support and help craft and deliver psycho-social programs to support students in their learning journey. At times, the psychologist will also be required to support other program offerings of the Student Life team.

ABOUT THE INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS AND TRADE MAJOR

Our International Business and Trade Degree Programme introduces students to foundational international business and trade skills through a “flipped classroom” model and challenges them to extend their learning through case challenges and live projects with corporate partners. It starts by providing students with foundational business skills, then adds complexity in the final years by understanding organisational contexts and international economic systems. Students gain valuable insight into innovative business through courses such as Entrepreneurship and New Venture Management, Cross Cultural Management, and Digital Strategy. Our academic programmes use project-based assessment, active and experiential learning, as well as peer-to-peer teaching to create a rigorous, engaging, and effective learning experience.
