Academics Meet To Discuss Executive Education In Africa

The growing market for executive education (ExEd) training in Sub Saharan  Africa and its impact on the financial sector has been the focus of a  research recently conducted in four African countries; Uganda, Cameroon,  Ghana and South Africa.

There was also a sampling of the key programmes and course offerings of the main education provider’s six secondary countries including Kenya,  Senegal, Tanzania, Zambia, Namibia, and Nigeria.

The Vice Chancellor of the University of Professional Studies Accra (UPSA)  Professor Abednego Feehi Okoe Amartey was the coordinator for the    African research team in Ghana. In addition, UPSA was classified as the second place of choice for ExEd after the University of Ghana. Commissioned by Financial Sector Deepening Africa (FSDA), the Canadian Bureau for  International Education (CBIE) in collaboration with the University of New  Brunswick (UNB), the research identified major trends, impacts, and  challenges around the impact of ExEd on the financial sector across SSA.
