# The MA Economics (Collaborative Programme)is a high-calibre, 2-year extended Masters programme in Economics offered by the University of Mauritius in close collaboration with the African EconomicResearch Consortium (AERC –website: www.aercafrica.org), a public, non-profit making organisation devoted to advanced economic research and training, based in Nairobi, Kenya. Students will spend their first year at the University of Mauritius, where they will take 3 core modules and sit for the examinations (around May 2021). On successful completion of the core modules, students willtravel to Nairobi late June 2021to take 2 elective modules over one semester at the Joint Facility for Electives (JFE), Nairobi. Finally, they will return to the University of Mauritius to prepare their MA thesis during the 4thsemester.Please note that due to limited budget, AERC will be able to fund only ten (10) year 2 students to complete the joint facility electives in Nairobi. The ten students (including foreign students) will be selected on the following criteria:
- They have passed all the CORE modules in year 1 at the University of Mauritius;
- Based on their performance in the first year here the CPA will be used as an indicator.
Non sponsored students (including foreigners)will have to self-finance their travel expenses to Nairobi and accommodation costs.
