In the summer of 2018, Drake University will host the prestigious Nigeria – USA Leadership Summit for accomplished Nigerian leaders in business, career, academia and government. At least twenty-five accomplished leaders will spend six days learning from Drake faculty and engaging in the Greater Des Moines community August 12 – 18, 2018.
The summit will host leaders who are accomplished professionals and moguls not just in Nigeria but in the whole continent of Africa. This summit will empower the African leaders through academic coursework, leadership training, networking, professional and business opportunities, and support for activities in their communities.
The leaders would be opportune to meet with American business owners for learning experience and/or business partnerships. The summit will focus on government relations and policies, education management, business and entrepreneurship. It will cater for African leaders who are running very large businesses or organizations or government departments
