The EPM Programme in Ghana is aimed at strengthening the institutional and human capacity of the Department of Economics at the University of Ghana to offer graduate-level training in Economic Policy Management (EPM) for mid-career policy advisors. The training is primarily expected to improve and enhance the efficiency of public sector policy analysts and economic managers in Ghana and Anglophone countries of West Africa. To a limited degree, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and private individuals are also eligible to undertake the programme. Based on need assessment, a limited number of applicants from outside Anglophone West Africa may be offered admission.
The programme is offered in two categories: regular and evening. The evening programme is fee-paying and its content is the same that of the regular programme.
Funding Agencies: The African Capacity Building Foundation and the Joint Japan/World Bank Graduate Scholarship Programme are currently financing the Programme. However, it is hoped that in the long term the Programme will become significantly self-financing.
