African Economic Forum 2014


Initiated in 2004, the African Economic Forum has grown to be the largest Africa-focused event at Columbia University with over 500 participants last year.

The conference seeks to highlight opportunities and challenges through stimulating discussion, insights and strategies for a prosperous Africa. It is organized by three of Columbia University’s premiere graduate programs: Columbia Graduate School of Business, Columbia Law School, and Columbia School of International and Public Affairs, and is the only one of its kind at a top tier institution.

The Forum brings together current students, alumni, faculty and the professional business community. We will convene thought leaders and entrepreneurs from the continent and the Diaspora in a series of interactive discussions and conversations while providing ample opportunity for networking in a relaxed environment.

The 2014 African Economic Forum will take place April 4th-5th at Columbia Law School.
