In order to grow and achieve a competitive market position more and more companies are active all over the world. The importance of the African Continent in this aspect is predicted to increase significantly in the coming years. There are different reasons for that. One is the rapid growth of some economies in Africa. Out of the 10 fastest growing economies in the world, 5 are African (see recent KPMG / Handelsblatt Study, on “Africa, Hype or Market”, published 2015). This comes with a development of a huge middle class in terms of people. Here KPMG study states the middleclass in Africa to exceed 325 Million people by now, with further potential. This middle class results in a growing sales market for consumer products; which more and more international companies do see. The raising number of Foreign Direct Investments, sums up to an amount of 520 billion US Dollars since 2000, says KPMG. Also in terms of human resources Africa is predicted to take an important role in the next decades. As the demografic change and multicultural economies are in need of more and diversified employees, the high and young population of Africa becomes more and more attractive. In order to fill the gap of require personnel and workforce, African employees will become more and more attractive for the European and American labour market. And the low salary levels in the African countries can even catalyse corporate decisions of establishing assembly or production sites in African countries. An important prerequisite for the utilization of this potential is the right skill set of the workforce. But one major challenge here is the lack or mismatch of skills in the majority of the African countries nowadays.
