About AEF 2022

We are excited to announce the 18th Africa Economic Forum, a student-led collaboration between Columbia Business School and the Columbia School of International and Public Affairs. We look forward to having you join our distinguished speakers and us as we explore the theme — Africa Today & Tomorrow: Accelerating the Growth of an Economic and Cultural Powerhouse. 

AEF continues to provide a forum for meaningful engagement and thought-provoking discussions, and this year will be no different. We are particularly excited to be hosting on our brand new Manhattanville campus this spring. This will be the first in-person AEF conference in three years and it’s made all the more special thanks to our state of the art facilities. You’ll hear from an impressive lineup of speakers from across the continent and even in these unprecedented times, we expect participants to leave with a renewed sense of hope in Africa’s success and to be inspired to do their part in moving the continent forward.
