Masters Programs in Business and Economics. 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. The in-depth curriculum draws from SBS’ experience of the case study methodology, lectures, industry guests’ sessions and syndicate group discussions. 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.

The program takes students through a challenging two year curriculum, comparable in content and quality to the first two years of study in reputable Ph.D. programs in North America and Western Europe. All courses are taught in English by highly-qualified international faculty. Our faculty is diverse, comprising resident professors with PhDs from universities such as Columbia University, Hebrew University and the University of Pennsylvania, and regular visitors who are world leaders in their fields, including several Fellows of the Econometric Society. The entire faculty is committed to helping students design individual study plans, supervising their thesis research, and supporting their applications for both professional jobs and PhD studies abroad. The quality of research and teaching at ISET is guaranteed by the International Faculty Committee, which brings together the ISET faculty and prominent academics from around the world. How is the program structured? In the first year, all students take the same four economics courses (Macroeconomics, Microeconomics, Statistics/Econometrics, and Mathematics for Economists), plus supplementary English/Academic Writing courses taught at three different levels for the whole duration of first year. In the second year, students are given the possibility to draw up an individual plan of elective courses. These electives are taught by highly-qualified and internationally-recognized resident and visiting faculty. They cover a wide spectrum of fields like energy economics, environmental economics, labor economics, resource economics, experimental economics, industrial organization, mechanism design, game theory, finance, health economics, education economics, advanced macro, advanced econometrics, development economics, cost-benefit analysis, program evaluation, advanced mathematics, time series, agricultural economics, open economy macro, economic growth, financial econometrics, topics in macroeconomics, among other fields.

Students are required to demonstrate mastery of technical research skills by writing and defending a master's thesis or literature critique, applying the tools they acquired in their studies. The master's thesis represents a significant piece of independent economic research while the literature critique critically reviews and interprets current economic research. Both types of writing projects are on a topic chosen by the student with guidance from faculty. In the second-year, students can choose to enroll in one of the concentrations offered at ISET (and thus tailor their study plan, with the help of their faculty advisor, to suit their needs and meet the concentration requirements). The currently-offered concentrations at ISET include "Agricultural Economics", "Energy Economics and Natural Resources Management", "Macroeconomic Policy", "Private Sector Development", "Human Resources Economics" and "Economic Theory".
