The Ubuntu Management Education Initiative gives HBA students the opportunity to travel, teach, and learn. For four weeks, HBA students travel to an African country, where they work at a university, teaching business students and introducing them to Case-Method Learning.

HBA student participant Chris Zhang created a video about the program during her time in Mwanza, Tanzania. She interviewed both students from Ivey and Mwanza’s St. Augustine University to hear their perspectives on the Ubuntu Management Education Initiative.

“If anyone really wants to make an impact when it comes to development work, pursuing this method and coming into a school in a developing country and teaching business is brilliant,” Christian Murphy, HBA ’17, says.

Associate Professor Nicole Haggerty spearheaded the Ubuntu Management Education Initiative six years ago.
