Evidence from capacity needs assessment carried out in the sub-region indicated gaps in management and administration especially at supervisory level.

This programme will therefore, inculcate into students the competences in management and administration to address capacity gaps identified.

The DMA courses are offered in the evenings from 5:00pm - 10:00pm. Classes run for two to three weeks in every two and a half to three months.
