Commissioned by Financial Sector Deepening Africa (FSDA), the Canadian Bureau for International Education (CBIE) in collaboration with the University of New Brunswick (UNB) conducted research on the impact of executive education on financial sector organisations in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). The results of the research can be viewed in the report “The Impact of Executive Education in Sub-Saharan Africa.”
The research identified major trends, impacts and challenges around the impact of ExEd on the financial sector across SSA and in each of the targeted countries including Uganda, Cameroon, Ghana and South Africa in addition to a sampling of the key programmes and course offerings of the main education providers in these countries and in six secondary countries including Kenya, Senegal, Tanzania, Zambia, Namibia and Nigeria. The research was conducted from June to October 2016. The official launch of this report by FSDA is planned to take place in Uganda in the fall of 2017.
CBIE would like to thank the team of researchers from UNB including the Research Lead, Dr. Jeffrey McNally and his team, Dr. Joseph Abekah, Dr. Eben Otuteye and Dr. Gopalan Srinivasan in addition to the Lead African researchers: Professor Alexis Kwontchie from Cameroon, Professor Abendnego Feehi Okoe Amartey from Ghana, Professor George Frempong from South Africa and Professor Wasswa Isaac Katono from Uganda. CBIE also acknowledges the guidance given to the team by David Comerford, CBIE Director for International Partnerships and M&E specialist, and Melissa Payne, Program Manager whose pen helped to strengthen the overall report. We also would like to thank Dr. Moses Ochieng and Julias Alego at FSDA in Nairobi for their constant support and constructive feedback to the research team as they conducted the research and wrote the report.
