Competition Policy Executive Programme

Strathmore Business School (SBS)
Campus Full time January 2017 Kenya Nairobi

A nation’s competition policy (sometimes called its antitrust policy) is a set of laws and institutions that promote economic efficiency through the protection and encouragement of competitive markets. Kenya has recently entered a new, modern, era in its competition policy history through the passage of the Competition Act (2010) and the establishment of key new institutions for its implementation: the Competition Authority of Kenya and the Competition Tribunal. [+]

A nation’s competition policy (sometimes called its antitrust policy) is a set of laws and institutions that promote economic efficiency through the protection and encouragement of competitive markets. Kenya has recently entered a new, modern, era in its competition policy history through the passage of the Competition Act (2010) and the establishment of key new institutions for its implementation: the Competition Authority of Kenya and the Competition Tribunal. This new law and its associated enforcement authorities will surely change the landscape for competition in Kenya and advance the nation’s progress toward a modern middle-income economy. For the new competition policy regime to succeed however requires the development of a considerable amount of human capital – people knowledgeable about the law and economics of competition policy who can participate it its implementation, evaluate its effectiveness and contribute to its evolution through the inevitable learning process. To this end, this course is designed as a graduate level course in competition economics. The intended audience are policy practitioners, university faculty members and graduate students, with training in micro economic theory and industrial organization, who are interested in learning about competition economics and becoming themselves part of the “training team” developing courses and curricula to prepare individuals for work in public and private sector organizations focused on competition policy. It is also hoped that exposure to this training will encourage research and advising on competition policy in Kenya as well – as a further part of the development of a competition policy ecosystem in Kenya. Program Delivery This is an intensive course that will run for 17 hours over five days covering the following major topics: Introduction to Competition Policy and review of key economic concepts Agreements between competitors (e.g. cartels) Abuse of a dominant position Vertical agreements and restraints Mergers As indicated, the course will be devoted to the economics of competition policy and is therefore not a course on competition law. However, references to the new Competition Act (2010) of Kenya will be made repeatedly. The course will assume an advanced level of training in micro economic theory. Some background in industrial organization economics (sometimes called industrial economics) would be valuable as well. The lectures will be conducted at the Strathmore Business School at Strathmore University in Nairobi. [-]

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!"

Aims and Objectives of the Programme The Department of Insurance and Risk Management aims at developing high level manpower to create a more effective impact only in the management of insurance industry of Nigeria but also in the further development of intellectual thought in insurance and Risk Management as an academic discipline.

DURATION OF COURSE AND MODE OF STUDY A full-time programme of at least 12 calendar months, broken into two semesters. The programme is based on course work and research project. Marketing Philosophy Marketing is the lifeblood of business. Every activity in business involves costs and it is only when one of the many functions - selling is performed that revenue accrues to an enterprise. This places Marketing in the very central position in every business. The premier position of Marketing in industry has been recognized, and establishments that do not give this vital business function its appropriate place pay the price for this failure with relative underdevelopment and vulnerability. Marketing has become even more important as technology and industrialization leap forward daily, with the resultant large scale production in anticipation of demand. One of its functions is to identify, anticipate and satisfy needs. With the increasing sophistication in computerization and quantification, scientific purchasing and management of materials in industry are imperative. These developments justify and indeed compel the establishment of the programme in Marketing. Objectives of the Programme The Postgraduate Programme in Marketing of the Department of Marketing, Enugu State University of Science and Technology aims at producing graduates equipped with the ability to influence the production of goods and services that satisfy (at a profit to the enterprise), the changing needs of individuals and groups in society. The Postgraduate Programmes in Marketing consist of the Postgraduate Diploma (PGD), the Master of Business Administration (MBA), the Master of Science (M.Sc.) and the Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) POSTGRADUATE DIPLOMA PROGRAMME The Postgraduate Diploma Programme has been specially designed for graduates and executives with deficiency or lack of previous professional knowledge in Marketing in order to equip them with the modern Marketing knowledge. It is also to prepare graduates with some deficiencies to fit adequately into the M.Sc. Marketing programme. A Postgraduate Diploma in Marketing is a recognized qualification for the practice of Marketing and for occupying high and responsible Marketing and business positions in Banking, Insurance, academic and governmental institutions and industries. Graduates of the PGD programme in Marketing should posses the ability to analyze and forecast the economic trend, understand and appreciate the presence of the consumer, and work effectively within the legal framework of society in which goods and services are produced and distributed. The programme does not only aim at producing graduates who will function as managers in commerce, industry, and government, but even more so, entrepreneurs who will be self-employed as well as employers of labour. It is expected that enterprising firms, organizations, and academic institutions would take advantage of the Diploma course to provide short-term (but very vital) Marketing training for their personnel. Objectives of the Programme: The specific objectives of the programme are: To expose students to fundamental courses in Marketing needed for the advanced M.Sc in Marketing programme. To teach students the process of investigative science needed to explore theoretical and practical problems in Marketing. To update students with deficient knowledge in the field of Marketing and other cognate business courses needed to understand and analyze Marketing problems. DURATION OF THE PROGRAMME The programme lasts a minimum of two semesters. ENTRY REQUIREMENTS Provided the matriculation requirements are satisfied; Five credit passes including English Language and Mathematics at the 'O' Level. Relevant Bachelor's Degrees not lower than 3rd class division from recognized Universities.

IN MASS COMMUNICATION DOCTOR OF PHILOSOPHY (Ph.D) IN MASS COMMUNICATION Introduction The Department of Mass Communication, ESUT was established in July, 1985 with strength of the five full time academic staff and other part-time lecturers and graduated its first set of graduates in 1988. The department was at that time in then faculty of Humanities when Anambra State University was briefly merged with the Institute of Management and technology. Sequel to the de-merging of the two institutions in November, 1985, the Interim Joint Council that was set up by the then Anambra State Government to govern the affairs of the State University abolished the Faculty of Humanities and moved the Department of Mass Communication to the Faculty of Environmental Sciences.

The department currently runs a Bachelor's (B.Sc) Degree programme for both regular and part-tome students, postgraduate programmes comprising Post-Graduate Diploma (PGD), Master's Degree (M.Sc) and Doctorate Degree (Ph.D) in Mass Communication.

Overall, the programmes are geared toward making the department a centre of excellence in media education training and research that produces high caliber graduates equipped with management skills to head media and relation organizations as well as change agents for national transformation.

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 Programs in Management 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. [-]
