Job at ALU Rwanda : International Business and Trade Faculty

We are looking for someone with experience in International Business and Trade and a passion for teaching to help us build our Degree Programme. This role involves a balance of facilitation, programme building and design of real-world projects that help learners develop expertise and skills. We need individuals who enjoy facilitating challenging conversations, coaching and mentoring aspiring leaders, and are excited to create highly effective and scalable learning experiences. We are fusing product development principles, instructional design, and real-world expertise to create a programme designed to train a new generation of pan-African business leaders and entrepreneurs.

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. ALU’s International Business and Trade major introduces students to the knowledge and skills for launching and leading impactful businesses.

You will be acting as both a Project Manager with our Corporate Partners and a coach for our students. You will facilitate skills-based workshops needed for our students to be able to deliver on their projects. You will also work closely with the rest of the team to provide support in designing experiences that enable students to push beyond the baseline of learning for the sake of learning. On a higher level, you will be involved in the co-creation of a vision and strategy for the programme, setting up the path that will allow students to extend the skills they learned to the outside world as the future leaders of the African Continent.

REQUIREMENTS:

  • Advanced degree (preferably a PhD) in International Business and Trade or a related field
  • Experience doing Business in Africa in various sectors
  • Have experience working with diverse and/or international organisations
