MA in Economic Policy Management

General

Program Description

The EPM Program 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 program. Based on need assessment, a limited number of applicants from outside Anglophone West Africa may be offered admission.

The program is offered in two categories: regular and evening. The evening program is fee-paying and its content is the same that of the regular program.

Funding Agencies: The African Capacity Building Foundation and the Joint Japan/World Bank Graduate Scholarship Program are currently financing the Program. However, it is hoped that in the long term the Program will become significantly self-financing.
