MSc Development Economics

In contemporary times, the need to develop high-performing human capital for the 21st century is not simply evident but paramount for emerging economies like Africa. The University therefore recognizes the need to contribute towards the rapid development of the Ghanaian economy for enhanced productivity, efficiency and effectiveness. The MSc Development Economics programme is intended to equip students who aspire to work in public sector organizations, private sector firms and international organizations with contemporary econometric tools. The advanced and technically rigorous nature of the programme also serves as an excellent foundation for PhD programmes and other research-focused roles. The programme is to provide current skills, knowledge, and understanding of development economics in nation building and growth. It offers a rich and diverse foundation for managing in a global economy. Each course within the program challenges students to critically assess traditional theories of economics and explores the new dimensions created by globalization and economic challenges.
