The two key concepts of the logotype:

  1. Black Eve, the common origin of humanity: “Africa: the cradle... and the future of the humanity”.
  2. African women as the pillar of the African Economy

The figure of the woman of the logo of the Hispano-African University of International Business represents Black Eve (mitochondrial Eve), the common origin of humanity.

  1. Today, the African woman is the pillar of the socio-economic transformation of Africa.
  2. The new technologies, represented by the @ (at) in the foot of the figure, facilitate the empowerment of African women

Black Eve, the common origin of the humanity.

For 6 million years, in Africa, there have been three revolutions of humanity, up to what we are, homo sapiens. Africa is the protagonist of the history of humanity. (*)

  1. The first hominid (Proconsul) appeared in East Africa in the Miocene (between 24 and 5 million years ago)
  2. The origin of humanity (homo sapiens) is estimated to have been about 200,000 years ago, all of us are descendants of the same woman, “Black Eve (or mitochondrial Eve)”.
  3. All of humanity today descends from about six hundred homo sapiens who lived in Africa about 100,000 years ago.
  4. Second emigration from Africa (50,000 years); colonisation of Asia, Europe and Australia.
  5. After (17,000 years), Sapiens arrives in America.

Africa, the cradle of the humanity, has a history and has given birth to history... each generation has to build its pyramids” Doctor Joseph Ki-Zerbo Training Portal.

The future of humanity is increasingly African (UNICEF).

The production of the logotype of the Hispano-African University of International Business

The logotype of the HA University has been made by Ms Tapsoba, an excellent artisan of the Craftsmen's Village of Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso, West Africa).

Artisan Logotype Hispano-African University

Mr Tapsoba, with the indications of Mr Thierry Somda (Director of the Hispano-African University of International Business) and Pedro Nonell (founder of the Hispano-African University), has created a model using a paste; then it will be moulded in copper to obtain the final figure. Oxidation obtains the blue colour. With the model, the logo has been digitised.
