BNU Joins ACE Programme

The Africa China and Europe (ACE) intensive Summer Programme

The Africa, China and Europe (ACE) Intensive Summer Programme in Development Studies is among several successful collaboration projects that Mzumbe University has established with other higher education institutions within the country and abroad. The joint program initially began last year, and covered a broad range of issues that included; rural, local and regional economic development; environmental and natural resource management; governance for equitable development, and population migration, urbanization; and reproductive health.

This year the programme welcomed 11 students from the University of Groningen, five students from Chinese Agricultural University and 23 students from our own Mzumbe University. Also this year another Chinese university has joined the programme, namely Beijing Normal University (BNU), which had 2 student participants. The Programme this year had included new topics such as deforestation, women empowerment and entrepreneurship. Furthermore, the students were able to work together in the field and practice their research skills.

Although ACE began only last year, it suffices to say that the collaboration has been a success. It enabled building a strategic network for MU, and connected different universities interested in interdisciplinary development research and training students. In other words, ACE has contributed effectively to the implementation of the internalization agenda of Mzumbe University, RUG, CAU and BNU.

Since ACE Programme establishment in 2013, Mzumbe University through the Institute of Development Studies (IDS) which is a host of the Programme, has been able to receive three Scholarships for PhD research for its academic staff. The three staff are in their early stages of their PhD studies at the University of Groningen and Chinese Agricultural University (CAU).

Needless to say, the ACE program offers students from different countries an extraordinary opportunity to get firsthand experience on development issues. Above all, the ACE program enabled students from different cultures and countries to exchange their intellectual viewpoints. Hopefully the program will be a success next year, and that it will continue to collaborate with universities from different countries.
