This is a program designed by the CASADE in conjunction with leading world universities to provide individuals already employed in the public sector or plan to work for governments in policy-making capacity the requisite background on efficient resource-allocation in developing countries. The one-week or two-week course, to be held on a national basis at the University of Chicago, London School of Economics, and the University of Wisconsin-Madison, would expose participants to effective procedural methods in policy formulation and analysis with particular emphasis on cost-benefit analysis of public sector projects, evaluation of assets with no readily available market prices, and externalities generated by public sector infrastructure development and implementation. Other courses allied with public policy may be structured to meet the needs of sponsoring agencies and institutions. Participants would have the option to reside in the campus of the university in which the program is held or make their own housing arrangements.
At the completion of each executive program, participants would receive a formal certificate that attests to competency in the program area or specialty. Approximately six months before the start of each program, a formal announcement describing the course, and its intended audience would be posted on our website. Please visit the course or program site for details on registration, fees, and accommodation.
