Purpose

The purpose of this qualification is to develop the students’ intellectual competencies, intellectual independence and practical skills in the acquisition, analysis, interpretation and application of appropriate industrial policies to support the structural transformation of the economies of the continent. The programme consists of core modules offering an in-depth coverage of a broad range of issues pertaining to industrial development policies, strategies and management in Africa, and allowing students to test the practical application of the knowledge imparted, participate in analysing case studies, conducting field visits, and prepare individual technical reports on the various themes covered. Mastering of the curriculum will provide students with the ability to be able to reflect critically on theory of industrial policy and its application. They will be able to deal with complex issues both systematically and creatively, design and critically appraise research, make sound judgments using data and information using the econometric techniques learned and communicate their conclusions clearly to specialist and non-specialist audiences.
