After a decade of impact in Rwanda, we are launching Davis College, a new global co-ed network of universities.
Over the past ten years, the Akilah Institute has become East Africa’s pre-eminent institution for women’s leadership and career development.
Now, we’re expanding access to more students than ever, and will offer degrees to male and female students. We have an ambitious vision for scale of our unique model of personalized and affordable higher education, while preserving Akilah as a unique campus for female leaders.
By 2030, we will open 10 Davis College campuses in Africa and Asia and educate 1 million students.
Davis College Rwanda and Davis College Hong Kong will open in 2020.
Our campus for female leaders, Akilah, opened in Rwanda in 2010. As East Africa’s pre-eminent higher education institution for women, Akilah’s graduates have launched careers in finance, clean energy, eco-tourism, agribusiness, conservation, technology, and more. The Akilah experience combines the Davis academic model with an intensive focus on women’s leadership.
