Master Program in Management Science in Africa

Top Master's Programs in Management Science in Africa 2017

Management Science

In order to successfully obtain a Masters qualification, you will need to obtain a number of credits by passing individual modules. Most taught Masters will have a number of core modules which you must take and pass in order to obtain the qualification. The assessment of research Masters is almost always entirely by a single dissertation module or project.

Management science is a field that contributes solutions to management problems in many industries. It may require workers to identify and understand strategies of a certain company, and taking those qualities and incorporating them into a larger plan of action meant to solve managerial issues.

Can any other region can match the variety and dimension of Africa? With imitable history, landscape and cultural contributions, hardly any regions offer a study abroad encounter that is more challenging or more satisfying in terms of studying.

Top Master Degrees in Management Science in Africa 2017. A country’s prosperity depends on its competitiveness which is based on its productivity in producing goods and services. Agents such as consumers, firms, counties and public sector agencies play an important part in creating value and supporting their economic development as well as that of their country, region or county. To achieve competitiveness public officers must learn how to allocate scarce resources among the various options. The allocation of resources is determined by interactions in markets. While good macroeconomic policies, stable legal and political institutions, and improving social conditions create the potential for competitiveness, wealth is actually created at the microeconomic level. This course explores the determinants of competitiveness and successful economic development viewed from a bottom-up, micro-level perspective. It is designed to enable public managers both in central government and county government to hone a unique set of skills that will help them play a catalytic role in enhancing county and public sector competitiveness towards sustained economic growth. Learning Objectives Primary purpose of the course is to analyze the factors that enhance competitiveness within public sectors using microeconomic thinking, concepts and tools. It will provide microeconomics tools that could be used to gain competitive advantage in public policy. This will enable counties to take the lead in economic development and to fully utilize areas of competitive advantage compared to other counties. Program Delivery This course provides an intensive, five-day introduction to microeconomics of competitiveness analysis theory and practice. The program heavily employs the case methodology as one of the learning techniques; this gives participants a chance to analyze real public sector microeconomic scenarios as they immerse themselves in the various contemporary competitive strategy challenges. This will be in addition to various class simulations, videos, thought-provoking lectures by our key faculty and enlightening class discussions by fellow participants. By the end of the course, participants will have a conceptual framework which will help them turn their own experience into expertise in gaining competitive advantage. Who Should Attend? This course will be beneficial to individuals involved in the analysis, formulation and implementation of public policy and public Sector competitive strategies. It would also be of interest to individuals in NGOS, Think Tanks and Research Centers who deal with public policy formulation. It is for people who want to improve their microeconomic thinking to enhance competitive and comparative advantage in different economic sectors. [-]

People negotiate daily. As a matter of fact negotiation happens several times a day. Despite the frequency of negotiations few people know how to negotiate well and achieve the most optimal outcomes. Many people believe that good negotiators are born. However, in reality anyone can improve their negotiation skills very considerably through training. At the Center for Public Policy and Competitiveness, we teach a negotiation framework that has proved effective both locally and globally. In the current public policy context leaders often need to manage change and this requires incorporating of multiple stakeholders interests which requires excellent negotiation skills. The challenges faced in negotiating with Senators, Governors, Executive Directors and Union staff have one unique technical difficulty- your opponent in one issue may be an ally in the next. Oftentimes public meetings are contentious or participants are deeply divided along issues of resources, values or even identity. Diffusing contentious situations and arriving at a workable solution is both an art and a science that requires a specific set of skills and practice. Individuals involved in analysis, formulation and implementation of public policy need to know the fundamentals of negotiations. They not only need to have the goal in mind, but they must also know how they will achieve the goal. Reaching the goal requires them to know how to say “no” while maintaining a relationship, how to close a deal on time-not too early nor too late, how to present the main interests clearly, how to balance transparency, public disclosure and citizen participation with discretion. Who Should Attend? This course will be beneficial to individuals involved analysis, formulation and implementation of public policy such as Government officers, County Government officials, NGOs and international organizations. It is for people who want to improve their negotiation performance and enhance the quality in relation public policy negotiations. [-]
