Development FinanceAdd to Favourites
USB’s internationally accredited Development Finance programmes are particularly suited to help you unlock the skills needed to develop Africa where it matters. It will help you to design and implement African-driven solutions, and show you how to shape the policies and programmes to make this happen. This PGDip focuses on critical skills that will enable you to work in development finance environments in both the public and private sectors.
Growth initiatives in this context can range from roads and energy plants to dams, schools, houses, hospitals, telecommunication infrastructure and small and medium-sized businesses.
Although the content of this programme is focused on Africa, the know-how and skills acquired can be applied in any developing country. Over the past five years, students from over 18 countries attended the programme.
