Goldman Sachs 10,000 Women Columbia Business School has partnered with Goldman Sachs in 10,000 Women, a global effort to provide 10,000 underserved women, predominantly in developing and emerging markets, with business and management education.
Our involvement in the 10,000 Women program complements the School’s overall capacity-building activities with our partner schools in Africa, the United States International University (USIU) in Nairobi, Kenya, and the University of Dar es Salaam (UDBS) in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.
The 10,000 Women grant to Columbia Business School will be used to fund co-teaching and mentoring with African partner school faculty; curriculum development, including courses in entrepreneurship, finance and non-profit management as well as African-centric case studies; PhD mentoring and research methodology seminars; and student consulting projects.
Columbia faculty members will also advise on the development of certificate programs in entrepreneurship and business management for women. In this way, the initiative will invest in the exponential power of women as entrepreneurs and managers as a means of reducing inequality and ensuring long-term sustainable growth of African economies.
Launched in 2008, Goldman Sachs 10,000 Women has committed $100 million over a five year period and has partnered with more than 60 academic and NGO partners in 16 countries including Afghanistan, Brazil, China, Egypt, India, Rwanda and the United States to seek, create and develop programs to impact the quality and capacity of business education in developing regions around the world.
