The first concern of the legal representatives of this wealthy person was profit sharing and securing a stake in the school that was yet to be set up. There was no consideration of the impact and contribution of the school to the economic development of the continent. I think a stake in the school was a rational idea, but profit sharing was rather a selfish thought. We had to refuse to deal with or take any money from the African businessperson, as it was against the values of what we stood for and why we were setting up the school.

According to Cunningham, the need for change in business and management schools’ curriculum from the traditional models is because the role and responsibilities of business are changing. She adds that even the mission and value statements reveal that there is a renewed focus on characteristics like integrity, ethics, trust, and sustainability. At the same time, external demands on businesses require that they accept a wider set of responsibilities. That idea that the sole focus of business is creating wealth for stockholders has also come under question.

It could therefore start an innovative knowledge industry/trend and in doing so, contribute to growth and development of the continent. Thirdly, management and business schools are now set up in Africa for all the wrong reasons. For most of them, the ideal is not to bring decent and quality management education to the countries they are located in or to train knowledgeable graduates to contribute to Africa’s socioeconomic and political development. For most of the proprietors of these private schools, the goal is to make a quick buck.
