CSU, MIT launch entrepreneurship program in Africa

FORT COLLINS — Working in conjunction with Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the CSU College of Business will begin educating entrepreneurs in Nairobi, Kenya.

CSU’s Sustainable Enterprise MBAs for Africa (SEMBAA) program will deliver curriculum in a “hybird-distance” delivery format and will offer social entrepreneurship education.

The program will be funded by a $25 million grant awarded by the U.S. Agency for International Development to the newly formed International Development Innovation Network, a consortium led by MIT.
Students and faculty from CSU’s sustainable enterprise programs in Fort Collins and Nairobi will build ventures designed to bring other project partners’ technology solutions to consumers in developing countries.

The new program is an expansion of CSU’s Global Social and Sustainable Enterprise MBA, which teaches student to use entrepreneurial and sustainable approaches to solve global problems.

CSU’s College of Business is partnering with the United States International University to launch the program in Kenya.
