This is a partnership between AIMS and the European School of Management and Technology (ESMT) Berlin supported by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation through the German Academic Exchange Service, DAAD. The program provides business skills training for postgraduate mathematicians to enhance their employability. Candidates are drawn primarily from AIMS students and alumni and come from across the continent. The program benefits from the participation of companies across the continent that provide internship placements for the candidates. Many of the participating companies have been members of the German Chambers of Commerce in East, West and Southern Africa. The candidates also received training delivered by Marga Business Simulations, Stellenbosch Careers Service and AIMS, as well as training for workplace readiness through sessions with business and industry representatives.
The program now runs in South Africa, Ghana and Rwanda. For further application details click here.
