Training overview

The AERC Training Programme is designed to augment the pool of economic researchers in sub-Saharan Africa by supporting postgraduate studies in Economics and Agricultural Economics, and by enhancing the capacities of departments of Economics and departments of Agricultural Economics/Agribusiness in local public universities.

AERC supports the Collaborative Master's Programme in Economics (CMAP) for Anglophone Africa (excluding Nigeria and South Africa), the Collaborative Master of Science in Agricultural and Applied Economics (CMAAE) for Eastern, Central and South Africa, and the Collaborative PhD Programme (CPP) in Economics, along with targeted support for PhD thesis research. The collaboration features joint facility for electives, enforcement of standards through internationally recruited external examiners, a common curriculum and a joint development of teaching materials.
