    Abstract

    This study extends the talent development literature by investigating the level of institutionalization of female talent development (FTD) practices in African B-schools, comparing this with the international best practice. It emerged that African B-schools, like their international counterparts, have not widely adopted FTD practices, and that their female–male ratio averaged less than a third of graduate management programs. They also seem to have adopted or adapted emerging international practices, with little observed evidence of unique African approaches. The paper further examines the role of indigenous and multinational enterprises in supporting FTD and discusses some implications for other key stakeholder groups.
