Instituted at the Department of Economics, University of Ghana, the Economic Policy Management (EPM) is a Masters Degree Programme which is sponsored by the African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) and the Joint Japan World Bank Graduate Scholarship Programme (JJ/WBGSP).

The Department of Economics collaborates with University of Ghana Business School in the deliverance of the 12-month custom-tailored MA degree in Economic Policy Management which entails the study of Economics and Management. The EPM Programme (EPMP) differs from a standard masters programme in economics in that it is designed exclusively for practitioners who have three or more years of policy relevant experience in government, state corporations or non-governmental organisations. The training is primarily expected to improve and enhance the efficiency of public sector policy analysts and economic managers in Ghana and Anglophone countries of West Africa. To a limited degree, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) are eligible. The Programme also draws on practitioners from the public and private sectors domestically, regionally and internationally and on faculty resources from the region and elsewhere to serve as guest speakers and resource persons for selected modules in the programme.

  • At the end of their training, these economic managers must be able to draw on a wider pool of policy experience and best practices both within and outside their own regions to develop sustainable policy options, policy framework and implementation of plans for economic management.
