The Sprott Centre for African Research and Business (SCARAB) is a strategic research unit within the Sprott School of Business at Carleton University. SCARAB’s mission is to promote Africa-focused business research, evidence-based analysis, training, consultancy, and development services to private, public and not-for-profit organizations.

SCARAB offers a variety of flexible, Africa-focused business programs designed to help individuals and organizations build capacity for success. Through these programs and initiatives, the Centre brings together business experts, entrepreneurs, institutions and organizations from a variety of fields, encouraging and facilitating an interdisciplinary approach to research activities. In addition, we work closely with strategic partners in Canada and Africa to promote initiatives capable of further strengthening Canada-Africa business relations.

Researchers, facilitators and other collaborators are drawn from an interdisciplinary array of experts within and outside Carleton.
