African Excellence 

By establishing Centres of Excellence at leading African universities, the DAAD aims to create modern educational capacities of supraregional influence. The improvements in the educational quality and the greater research capacity available at these world-class hubs will enable the next generation of leaders to acquire training in line with international standards.

Along with the largely interdisciplinary Master’s and PhD programmes, all of the centres impart supplementary knowledge in the areas Good Governance, management and other multidisciplinary skills (conflict management, team building, intercultural competence). Moreover, all of the centres have a scholarship programme.
