A partnership with academia

Building knowledge for trade and development

Curricular advice


The Vi enables universities to update their existing courses or develop new programmes in the trade and development fields by providing curricular advice on their design, structure and content.
Since its establishment, the Vi witnessed the launch of new Master’s in Benin, Belarus, China, the Islamic Republic of Iran, Jordan, Kenya, Senegal, the United Republic of Tanzania and Viet Nam, and contributed to the development and/or upgrade of courses at universities in Bulgaria, Cameroon, Chile, Colombia, Egypt, France, Kenya, Nepal, the Russian Federation, South Africa, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Togo and Uganda.
Vi support continues, as universities in Burundi, the Gambia, Kenya, the Russian Federation and Uruguay plan new programmes in the near future.
