Africa-related competencies for professionals
Continuing education at the Centre for African Studies
Continuing education at the ZASB is aimed at individuals who are engaged with Africa on a professional or private level, as well as organizations that operate in an African context. Our continuing education programme consists of thematic short courses and the CAS in African Affairs. In addition, we offer compact intensive courses as tailor-made solutions for companies and organizations.
For the ZASB, continuing education is an important channel for the exchange with a wider public as well as with business, authorities and civil society. This exchange is crucial for us in order to leverage the competences of our members and partners for society and to render our research and teaching activities more relevant.
