Established in July 1988, the African Economic Research Consortium is a public not-for-profit organization devoted to advanced policy research and training. The principle objective is to strengthen local capacity for conducting independent, rigorous inquiry into problems pertinent to the management of sub-Saharan African economies through a synergistic programme combining economic research with postgraduate training in economics. The AERC is supported by donor governments, private foundations and international organizations.
The Joint Facility for Electives (JFE)
The JFE is an intensive teaching environment that offers a full range of elective courses in the Collaborative Masters Programme (CMAP) and Collaborative PhD Programme (CPP). Each year, from late June to early November, eligible CMAP and CPP participating universities send their postgraduate students to a common facility known as the Joint Facility for Electives to be taught elective courses by a team of visiting lecturers competitively sourced internationally. The JFE admits approximately 70 CMAP students and about 30 CPP students after their successful completion of core courses comprising Microeconomics, Macroeconomics and Quantitative Methods in their home universities. The CMAP JFE runs for a duration of 14 weeks comprising two (2) semesters of seven (7) weeks each, while the CPP JFE runs for 16 weeks divided into two eight (8)-week semesters. Apart from encouraging a more efficient use of resources, the JFE offers an ideal environment for networking and a structured exchange of people, ideas, materials and methods that reduce isolation and stimulate continued growth and collective improvement in quality.
