About the Project
JIBS has collaborative PhD and MSc programs with Addis Ababa University, College of Business and Economics (AAB-CBE) and University of Rwanda, College of Business and Economics (UR-CBE).
Efforts are made to extend this collaborative program which is financed by the Swedish International Development Cooperation (SIDA) to include other universities in Eastern Africa.
As part of the exchange, education, training, research capacity building and publication activities we intend to organize workshops and conferences on an annual basis at partner universities.
Entrepreneurship and Innovation for Development
In a unique agreement, JIBS collaborates with four leading universities in Africa. Under the umbrella of the Entrepreneurship and Innovation for Development (EID) JIBS will work together with the College of Business and Economics at University of Rwanda, the College of Business and Economics at Addis Ababa University, Ethiopia, the College of Business and Management Sciences at Makerere University, Uganda and the University of Dar Es Salaam Business School, Tanzania in four areas;
- PhD education in Management and Economics
- Research in Management and Economics
- Research dissemination platforms
- Private sector development
As many of the challenges and opportunities are of similar kind for the African partners within EID, the potential of success of the partnership is great and the contributions to national and regional development will be substantial.
Starting from 2015, we are now seeing proof of an emerging research culture arriving from the collaboration between CBE and JIBS. Since 2015 there have been 77 articles and there are many more in the pipeline. From seven books produced we have 10,076 downloads.
