The leadership development programme that the Adventist University of Africa offers an interdisciplinary programme, which draws from the resources of the School of Postgraduate Studies (SPS), particularly, from management science, education, health, and research methodology. It also draws from the resources of the Seminary for the enhancement of its philosophical and fiduciary strand.

Philosophically, the leadership programme is undergirded by the belief that God is the Creator of the universe and the Sustainer of life. Moreover, the same God is the Redeemer of human beings. This God has commissioned us to advance His work of reconciling human beings to Himself, and thus, restoring the image of God to humanity in preparation for His return to take His people where He is. Education is the work of a lifetime to achieve God’s redemptive agenda. Seventh-day Adventists believe that education is preparation “for active life that is marked by excellence,” and this understanding drives the leadership development programme at AUA.
