This study is primarily an exploration of opportunities and challenges in the sustainability of business relationships between the Middle East (ME) and Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). Observations are made from sectors including retail (Madichie and Abubakar, 2012; Madichie and Blythe, 2011), mobile telecoms (Madichie, 2011), and sports (Madichie, 2013a; 2013b), with a view to understanding developments in higher education (see Madichie and Kolo, 2013) in the MESSA (acronym). The study consequently argues that the need for education across all levels is contingent upon sustainable development – and notably so in the context of forging sustainable development through the prism of higher education in the MESSA and the rest of the developing world.
