East African countries are facing an urgent need to improve management education to address a rising demand for local managerial talent. While stakeholders have taken action to improve the quality of management education, their efforts fail to reach their full potential. Analysis of Ivey's 39 Country Initiative sheds light on the factors that may impede the performance of such efforts. We introduce a model to measure the implementation challenges of such initiatives. Our findings suggest that success of such initiatives depends on the ability of stakeholders to cooperate and discharge their respective responsibilities.
