Recruitment

Meet our team

The Recruitment and Admissions team is responsible for attracting and enrolling ideal applicants who are passionate and highly motivated in pursuing careers in Information Systems, Entrepreneurship and Hospitality Management. The Recruitment and Admissions Team offers comprehensive information about the programs offered at Akilah Institute to community members, partners and prospective applicants and their family members.

Recruitment and Admissions interacts with thousands of women and girls throughout the country and in the East African Community, informing them of what Akilah is all about. We do this through on-going, recruitment efforts throughout the year using the following channels:

Secondary School Visits

Our Recruitment and Admissions team is eager to build strong partnerships with secondary schools throughout Rwanda, in particular. To do so, we visit secondary schools and give information sessions to interested students in Senior 4, 5 and 6. Would you like Akilah to visit your school? Please contact us via email, Facebook or phone! Our contact information is below.

Community Information Sessions

We work closely with Local Government Officials to host information sessions in Kigali City and upcountry. We invite applicants, their parents or guardians and community members to attend and learn more - all are welcome! Check our Facebook Page to know where we are visiting for Admissions 2016.

Radio Announcements

Listen for Akilah from January – April on your favorite radio stations: Kiss FM, Royal FM, Radio Rwanda and Radio One.

Social Media

Facebook is our primary method of communication with prospective applicants. Like us on Facebook for our most recent updates about our recruitment activities. There, you will learn about where our next information session is or if you have passed the admissions assessments. Like us to stay informed!

Student Recruitment Committee

Our very own students tell the Akilah story best! Be on the look-out for Akilah’s Student Recruitment Representatives sharing their experience in and around Kigali City. Students also attend school information sessions, so secondary students can ask questions directly about the Akilah experience. 

Collaboration with Partners

Akilah works with a network of institutions, both public and private, to share information about our programs and how to apply.

Our team also provides free community training opportunities in subjects such as Growth Mindset and basic Career Development skills.
