About

The Master of Commerce Degree (MCom) in Development Finance at the University of Cape Town will give you the expertise to turn ideas into financially sound, long-term development solutions that improve lives, uplift communities and place Africa on the global stage.

Overview

Why to study

As a professional discipline, Development Finance at the University of Cape Town is widely practised today by all central governments; major development finance institutions including the World Bank, the IMF, the UN; as well as public and private sector organisations, international foundations and NGOs.

However there is a shortage of Development Finance experts in Africa, where the expertise is needed most. It's for this reason the University of Cape Town's Graduate School of Business (GSB), has partnered with Africagrowth Institute (AGI), to create the Master of Commerce Degree in Development Finance.

The MCom (Development Finance) programme aims to ensure that Africa produces enough development finance experts to meet the growing needs of the growing continent.
