Junior Researchers Training Program

Since its inception, MAS hosts a number of trainees chosen from among economics graduates with outstanding academic records(GPA) from local and foreign universities with promising potential to become researchers. This program is primarily a response to the urgent need to build the capacity of university graduates and bridge the gap between the output of local universities and the needs of the labor market. This program has been an important incubator for some of the best assistant and associate MAS researchers past and present.

Each year, MAS hosts around 30 research trainees for various periods. In addition, MAS hosts a smaller number of trainees in its administrative departments.
