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 economies. The three-week course, to be held in Washington, DC, would equip program participants with effective procedural methods of policy formulation, analysis and implementation with particular emphasis on cost-benefit analysis, socio-economic impacts of policies, democratic principles and individual human rights that undergird public policies. Participants would also learn how to evaluate public projects and assets with no readily available market prices, and the externalities they generate. At the end of the course, participants should be functionally cognizant of important roles of institutions in facilitating economic development, and observance of the rule of law.


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 speciality. 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.
