Join us at the 26th annual Wharton Africa Business Forum on November 2-4, 2018

The Wharton Africa Business Forum (WABF) is the longest running business school conference focused on Africa. Each year, WABF brings 600+ students and professionals to discuss the latest thinking on starting, growing and transforming business on the continent.

 Since the inaugural Wharton Africa Business Forum (WABF), we have welcomed thought leaders, dignitaries, CEOs, captains of industry and young professionals from around the world to contemplate career leadership and champion Africa as a business destination. In this historic 26th Anniversary year, we are honored to be able to continue in this tradition.

This year we have selected the theme “Reimagining Africa's Global Partnerships: Unleashing its potential and redefining pathways to growth”. WABF26 hopes to distil the influences that have driven change in the past and that will drive change in the future.

Our goals for the 26th Forum are simple but bold: to provide unparalleled insights into the opportunities and challenges of operating in Africa; to connect young professionals with leaders in Africa’s public, private and social sectors; and to inspire educated talent in the Diaspora to get involved in the development of the continent.

We look forward to hosting you this November in Philadelphia.
