The Center for Applied Research and Innovation in Supply Chain – Africa (CARISCA), has enrolled its first batch of Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) candidates for the 2020/2021 Academic year. The short-listed candidates would be sponsored by the Center for three academic years.
This forms part of the Center’s mission to support higher education institutions in exploring and identifying solutions to complex development problems through training, research utilisation, and engagement of research action and policy. To this cause, the Center has admitted over twenty candidates.
The candidates have been admitted into the PhD. Business and Management programme which would focus on Logistics and Supply Chain Management. The programme would be run by the School of Business in the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).
Candidates would be trained and taken through a series of workshops in order to strengthen their research capacity in Supply Chain Management. The outcome of research by these candidates would be translated into possible solutions for problems regarding logistics and supply chain in Africa.
The Center looks forward to enrolling more postgraduate candidates into its available programs in future.
