The Thabo Mbeki African Leadership Institute (TMALI) will be offering a short course on Introduction to Thought Leadership for Africa's Renewal in the second semester of 2011. Approval for the course was received from the University Senex on the 18th of November 2010. The stringent quality assurance processes in place to ensure the highest standards for the programmes have meant that refinement of the content and materials will take longer than initially envisaged, and consequently are not ready for distribution in the first half of the year. Information regarding courses to be offered in the second semester will be available on 1 May 2011. Applications will be open for the second semester courses on the 20th June 2011.

The cost for the Short Course is R 2400, R 1200 is payable on registration.
