About the university: Founded in 1962, the Universidade Eduardo Mondlane (UEM) of Maputo, Mozambique, is pledged to being an institution of excellence in the context of education, science, culture and technology.
Having been teaching International Trade Law as part of their Bachelors in Law programme, the university decided, in 2004, to set up a Masters in International Trade Law, partly in response to the need for qualified personnel in the government for regional and international trade negotiations. Tbhe students on the course therefore tend to be professionals in service and classes take place in the evenings after work.
In 2006, the university launched a Masters in Development Economics that will be delivered in cooperation with several universities from abroad, in Southern Africa and Portugal.
Areas of expertise: The university hopes to facilitate the extension of networking opportunities within Mozambique and to collaborate in workshops that may be held in the country, or region. It maintains an extensive network of contacts in Africa and around the world. In addition, the univeristy would also like to share its training materials with other institutions.
