ASE Academic Partnerships Network: A Source of Opportunity for Students

The African School of Economics is committed to providing a top-notch education for its students. Alongside the rigorous methodological and theoretical training offered through ASE coursework and research opportunities, ASE meets this commitment through continuous engagement in dynamic partnerships with other high-quality educational institutions both domestically and internationally.

These partnerships increase students’ opportunities to engage in trainings, workshops, and conferences, interact with professors and academics at the forefront of their fields, and diversify their educational experience through study abroad.

Partnerships such as ASE’s 2+2 agreement with the University of Ottawa in Canada, where some undergraduate students can spend two years studying at ASE, then two years studying at the University of Ottawa, especially increase students’ opportunities for a high-quality education on an international scale.  Graduate students, meanwhile, can take part in semester-long exchange programs with the SKEMA Business School in Paris and many other well-known universities

Alongside its partnerships with universities in Europe and North America, ASE recognizes the importance of facilitating knowledge exchange and academic cooperation between West African Universities, and to that end it engages in formal partnerships with the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA), and the Institut de Mathématiques et de Sciences Physiques (the Institute for Mathematics and Physical Sciences or IMSP) at the University of Abomey-Calavi in Benin, among others.

Additionally, partnerships with internationally renowned institutions such as the Princeton University Woodrow Wilson Center, the Toulouse School of Economics in France, and HEC Montréal enable inter-school collaboration on curriculum design, coursework, and research, which serves to increase the quality of education at ASE and prepare students for international careers. These partnerships also enable students to apply their skills practically through unparalleled research and internship opportunities.
