IERPE / IREEP (in French) is an empirical research center created in 2004 and considered one of the top think tanks in Africa. The center has conducted about 30 major surveys on Governance, Public Health, Education, Security, Agricultural Policies, and Electoral Behavior. IERPE has conducted or supervised the implementation of surveys in Benin, Burkina Faso, Senegal, Madagascar, Cote d’Ivoire, Democratic Republic of Congo, Mali and Togo. IERPE will continue this mission and aim to become the largest survey firm in Africa. Given that statistics and empirical research are at the core of ASE's curriculum, IERPE is an important asset to all our academic programs and at all levels.
