Africa’s economic growth outlook has come into sharp focus recently but while it is the boundless opportunities in natural resources that are currently driving this renewed interest, Africa’s billion-strong population, mostly youthful and increasingly urbanised, will translate into a booming consumer and labour market in the near future. Doing Business In Africa Program (DBAP) is a program designed by Strathmore Business School (SBS) to provide executives with a unique exposure to the African continent by providing practical skills and knowledge required to successfully operate and grow a business on the African continent.

DBAP aims to demystify the African continent and help global executives have a deeper understanding of what is driving the economic activities therein. Key Focus Areas Long associated with a reliance on foreign aid, Africa now boasts higher returns on investment than any other region in the world, many of which are going through periods of economic stagnation or even recession. Africa’s aggregate income is projected to increase by above 4.5 per cent p.a. into the near future. The International Monetary Fund estimates that the continent will have the world’s fastest-growing economy during the next five years. Trade between Africa and the rest of the world increased by 200 per cent between the years 2000 and 2011 as a result of increased exports from various sectors in many African economies. The economic growth is set to bring huge benefits to the people of Africa. Projections on the African population indicate that much of the continent will retain lower-middle and middle-class majorities by 2030, with a three-fold increase in consumer spending.

Best Master's Degrees in Business Studies in Africa 2017. A word from the Academic Director "Being SMIB is not only a label that you get when joining the academic programme. It is a real mindset, attitude and way of living that will stick to you all along the years. I can assert this, not only as the appointed Academic Director of the programme, but also as a former SMIB myself. This would be the summary of this SMIB-spirit: business-oriented, open-minded, bold and authentic. Being open-minded is not an advertising catch phrase for the SMIB programme. We really live diversity in our daily life: when on campus, through the various nationalities represented in the programme; when on business trips; when at work, through the many chosen expatriation paths that SMIBs are in… So how do we do it? Simply because our focus is on excellence, in whatever we do. And to be excellent, one needs emotional, cultural, theoretical and practical intelligence. So if you are not fully convinced, read on!"

The Master of Management in the field of Public and Development Management is a rigorous academic programme aimed at providing students with the advanced conceptual and analytical abilities they need to become effective public policy-makers and senior public administrators and development practitioners. [+]

Best Master's Degrees in Business Studies in Africa 2017. The Master of Management in the field of Public and Development Management is a rigorous academic programme aimed at providing students with the advanced conceptual and analytical abilities they need to become effective public policy-makers and senior public administrators and development practitioners. Candidates will require a foundational knowledge of public and development management. This includes a solid grounding in the theory and practice of governance, policy formation, and the management of large organisations, including public bureaucracies. While the Masters programme itself lasts a year, candidates are required to first complete the PDM course, which will provide them with the requisite foundation. Therefore, the Masters degree is effectively a two-year programme. Curriculum Masters students will first be required to complete four NQF level 9 courses. They will then be required to complete a dissertation of about 35000 – 40000 words on a contemporary public or development management subject. The course work and dissertation will each account for 90 of the 180 credits required to obtain the MM degree. The course work is aimed at providing students with the skills they need to conceive, plan, research, and write their dissertations. They also complete a reading elective designed to deepen their understanding of their chosen research topic. Students are required to develop a research proposal, which forms the basis of their dissertations, and to present it to a research committee for approval. The courses are: Quantitative research methods (20 credits) This course builds upon students’ prior knowledge of basic sampling methods and simple statistical inferences, including chi-square tests. This material is briefly revised, and the course then moves on to the formulation of research problems, purpose statements, and research hypotheses for use in quantitative research proposals; survey design, questionnaire construction, and simple data analysis; and hypothesis testing, including power analysis and regression analysis. Qualitative research methods (20 credits) This course teaches students to design and conduct qualitative research, and analyse qualitative data. Subjects include qualitative research paradigm assumptions, qualitative research designs/methods, various techniques and methods for gathering and analysing data, ethical issues, and evaluation. Research proposal design (10 credits) This course helps students to progress from a theoretical understanding of research models and methods to formulating an actual research proposal which will form the basis of their research report. The proposals are presented to and defended before a School proposal panel. Directed reading elective (40 credits) This course assists students to engage in depth with a subject relevant to public or development management. It comprises a series of seminars in which the lecturer and students work together to explore the literature on a given subject. Thesis The thesis is the pinnacle of the Masters programme. After formulating their proposals, students need to conduct original and in-depth research, analyse the results, and integrate research and analysis into a coherent thesis. Students are actively supported by thesis supervisors. All P&DM academic staff members supervise theses in their areas of specialisation. Admissions Applicants for the Masters programme first need to obtain the PDM with a pass mark of 65 per cent. Alternatively, they need to hold an honours degree in public management, obtained with a pass mark of at least 65 per cent. Applicants in the latter category may be required to supplement the standard Masters curriculum with additional courses. Course delivery Both the PDM and MM are offered as full-time, part-time and block study courses. Part-time students attend lectures in the evenings, and block release students attend lectures in two-week periods spaced throughout the year. Workloads Both the PDM and MM programmes are designed to encourage independent research and study. The workloads generally comprise 24 hours of contact time per course, with additional preparation and study hours taking total hours to the relevant NQF requirement. The total workload for the PDM is 1 200 notional hours. The total workload for the MM is 1 800 notional hours. Assessments Students are assessed by means of assignments and written examinations. Class and group assignments are also assessed. All examinations as well as the theses are externally examined. Applications Prospective students need to complete an application form which is available from the faculty office as well as online. They also need to submit records of previous academic performance, and a curriculum vitae. [-]
