Current reports on Africa indicate that the continent is one of the fastest growing regions of the world, second to East Asia. In fact, of the ten fastest growing economies in the world, six are located in Africa. To sustain the performance of African economies, it is important that African organizations, for-profit and non-profit, compete not only in Africa but also globally. For management research to be relevant and impactful, it must look at what really happens within African organizations, how African organizations achieve high performance and what makes a high-performing African organization.
In accordance with the theme of the conference, Building High Performing Organizations in Africa, the AFR Academy is looking forward to engaging conceptual and empirical papers, symposia, and professional development workshops on topics that that describe how to build effective and competitive organizations in Africa.
Lead the African Researchers through global communication and collaboration.
The mission of AFR is to:
