The purpose of the MPhil in Industrial Policy is to develop the students’ intellectual competencies, intellectual independence, and practical skills in the acquisition, analysis, interpretation, and application of appropriate industrial policies to support the structural transformation of the economies of the continent. The program consists of core modules offering in-depth coverage of a broad range of issues pertaining to industrial development policies, strategies, and management in Africa, and allowing students to test the practical application of the knowledge imparted, participate in analyzing case studies, conduct field visits, and prepare individual technical reports on the various themes covered. Mastering the curriculum will provide students with the ability to be able to reflect critically on the theory of industrial policy and its application. They will be able to deal with complex issues both systematically and creatively, design and critically appraise research, make sound judgments using data and information using the econometric techniques learned, and communicate their conclusions clearly to specialist and non-specialist audiences.
