About

We specialize in admissions support for business school candidates from or interested in Africa. Whether you are applying for a Masters or MBA, locally or internationally, we can help you on your journey.
MBA candidates from Africa make up just 2% of top international programs. There are outstanding candidates from Africa who should be in top programmes. Yet there is a large and systematic admissions gap. Admissions Africa helps bridge this gap by:
  •  Supporting candidates from Africa through their application journey, from GMAT/GRE prep through to subsidized application advice.
  • Partnering with business schools to develop the candidate pipeline in Africa (through events, and free resources for candidates).
