AABS Research Capacity Survey Report 

In June, 2015, a survey was sent to administrators, faculty members and Ph.D. students at the African Association of Business Schools (AABS) member schools.  The survey was designed to assess aspects of the research capacity and role of research at member schools; and provide information about research needs.  We hope to utilize the survey information to prepare funding requests to support research capability building efforts at the AABS member schools.  This document is a summary of the survey findings.  The report is organized in 11 sections.  The sections cover the following topics:  the respondents’ demographic information, workload responsibilities, AABS workshop participation and role of research, types of research support, needed research skills, types of research supports, valued research outlets, disciplinary area needs for research, skills development workshop and post research workshop needs, strategies to maintain collegial connections, the role of research in Africa for other parts of the world, needs, post research workshop needs, need for an ongoing assessment of research capabilities and other issues.

AABS Agribusiness Project Resources

In 2012, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation awarded a grant to the Association of African Business Schools to establish an agribusiness consortium (AAC) - comprising African business schools, agribusiness industry and global partners - with the objective of development and delivery of Agribusiness Management training programmes backed by appropriate contextual research. The AAC rolled out multiple editions of a flagship Agribusiness Management Programme (AgMP) in Ghana, Nigeria and Tanzania in partnership with GIMPA, Lagos Business School and Sokoine University of Agriculture respectively. A range of agribusiness training programmes were offered targeting levels ranging from farmers and medium-sized entrepreneurs to district- level aggregators to large agribusinesses and financial institutions. To date, the AAC has rolled out 11 programmes across East, West and Southern Africa drawing 212 participants from 18 countries across Africa and beyond.

The Monitoring and Evaluation Impact Report and the Curriculum Manual are the two core outputs of the Agribusiness Project.
