JIBS in Africa

JIBS has collaborative PhD and MSc programs with Addis Ababa University, College of Business and Economics (AAU-CBE) and University of Rwanda, College of Business and Economics (UR-CBE).

The collaboration is called EID, which stands for Entrepreneurship and Innovation for Development, and within the program, the five universities will not only be able to engage in student exchange, they will also collaborate in the dissemination of research and development of the private sector.

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.
