The two organizations will be working together to provide the Chartered Economist designation to past and present students of the SAUT.
Under this agreement, the ICCE will offer scholarships and a quality support system for students at SAUT who wish to pursue the ICCE’s Chartered Economist designation.
According to Paul Frimpong, Global Head of Membership of the ICCE,
“This is among many such partnerships the ICCE has embarked on in recent years with multiple universities in the region.”
‘We believe that our qualification brings additional value and global recognition to students and graduates of partner universities, making them stand out in the marketplace and enhancing their career aspirations.”
Professor Costa Ricky Mahalu, who is the Vice Chancellor of SAUT, said again that he was happy to see this partnership with ICCE come to fruition.
“A partnership with a global body such as ICCE only speaks to the commitment of SAUT to produce quality and top graduates in all fields.”
“We are happy that through the ICCE, our students will graduate and be recognized as professional economists to help industry and governments.”
