Our Alumni Community

I believe that your continuing relationship and dialogue with the Institute will enrich your role as potential agents of change, while also extending to the Institute the benefits of your experiences and insights. This partnership can ensure that you are well placed to contribute to the development and growth of future generations of our intelligentsia, so that we strengthen our own capacity to determine our destiny.

As of December 2021, there are more than 700 alumni dispersed across more than 35 countries. It is a growing body, and once you graduate, you can join a community of professionals in diverse sectors including academia, development, media, education, government, as well as arts and culture.
