U.S. News & World Report ranked Georgia State the No. 2 most innovative college or university in the nation.
Starting in mid-June, 700 emerging young business, civic, and public leaders from 49 countries across Sub-Saharan Africa join 27 Institutes throughout the United States as part of the Mandela Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders.
A cohort of 25 Fellows visit the Georgia State University campus each year. For more than five weeks, faculty, staff, and community partners from the Andrew Young School of Policy Studies, Georgia State University, and Atlanta community will immerse the Fellows in rigorous academic and leadership training, as well as a robust peer collaborator program.
Designated a Public Management Institute, the School will introduce the Fellows to U.S. models and best practices in public management in areas such as citizen engagement, human resource management, public financial management, and the intersection of government with business and civil society.
Over the course of six weeks, our fellows will participate in academic sessions, leadership training, networking events, site visits with local businesses and community service projects throughout Metro-Atlanta.
