Master of Commerce in Management Practice specialising in Trade Law and PolicyPosted on Monday, December 12th, 2011 in Training
The University of Cape Town’s Graduate School of Business (GSB) and tralac have teamed up to offer a course that aims to build capacity in African countries to facilitate their integration into the global economy and enhance their trade performance. The Masters of Commerce (MCom) in Management Practice specialising in Trade Law and Policy degree is accredited and awarded by the University of Cape Town.
The programme adopts an innovative inter-disciplinary approach combining trade law, trade policy and management, to build not only the technical capacity of policymakers and trade experts, but also to enhance the institutional capacity of government departments and other organisations that play an important role in the trade policy process.
To address this institutional dimension of the capacity deficit, this programme combines law and economics with management. The management component aims to enhance not only the learning process of participants, by developing their professional skills profile and enabling them to work more effectively in a complex policy making arena, but also contributes to institutional development.
The programme adopts a mixed-modality learning approach – participants visit the UCT Graduate School of Business campus in Cape Town, South Africa for three intensive full-time two-week learning blocks. An inter-modular learning programme, anchored in their institution, includes essays, assignments and case study analysis. These submissions are assessed, and in addition participants will be examined at the end of each module. Participants also prepare a final dissertation on a topic of their choice.
Accreditation: NQF 9 – 180 credits
The Masters programme comprises four compulsory courses and a compulsory research paper. The programme is equivalent to 180 credits.
- Systemic Management Practice (30 credits)
- International Trade Law (30 credits)
