ABOUT COLUMBIA AFRICON
The Columbia Africa Conference is a student-led collaboration between Columbia Business School, Columbia Engineering, and the Columbia School of International and Public Affairs. Over the last 20 years, we have provided a forum for meaningful engagement and thought-provoking discussions.
Launched in 2004, the Columbia Africa Conference (CAC), formerly the Africa Economic Forum, is the largest Africa-focused event at Columbia University and is a student-led collaboration between Columbia Business School and the greater Columbia Africa community. This year, African students at Barnard College, Columbia College, Columbia Law School, Columbia Engineering, and SIPA will all play a role in bringing the conference to life!
Over the years, the conference has been an occasion for top business executives, thought leaders, and politicians to discuss key topics affecting the continent, while providing a rich learning and networking experience for speakers, businesses, and attendees alike.
