On Tuesday October 18, the USIU-Africa Alumni Association hosted fifty Global Executive Master of Business Administration (GEMBA) alumni to a cocktail event at the Sankara Hotel in Nairobi. Speaking at the event, Vice Chancellor Prof. Paul Zeleza urged the alumni - many of whom are senior executives at various major corporate organizations - to promote linkages between the university and their organizations, in order to advance the university’s research agenda, itself a principal component of the university strategic plan unveiled earlier this year.
