Colorado State University and MIT have announced plans to launch a new entrepreneurship MBA program in Africa.

According to a Colorado State University press release, the "Sustainable Enterprise MBAs for Africa" program will help African students develop market-based solutions to the continent's health and financial challenges.

The Nairobi, Kenya-based MBA program is 18 months long and includes a mix of online and in-class curriculum. Students in the program will learn about social entrepreneurship and venture capital, and be required to "build triple-bottom-line ventures, which deliver not only profits but social and environmental impacts as well," according to the press release.
