MMS-Nuffic Training modules call up for participants

The Ghana Netherlands Business and Cultural Council (GNBCC), the Cocoa Value Addition Artisans Association of Ghana (COVAAAGH), The Africa Trade Academy (ATA)
and Maastricht School of Management (MSM) are collaborating to provide SME entrepreneurs in Ghana's horticultural and cocoa products value chains with the opportunity to upgrade their business competences.

This training is designed to help you upgrade your business skills and knowledge to better compete in the global market. The training will cover a wide range of topics, including:

-Value chain analysis: leading the value chain, managing vertical and horizontal collaborations, and with the explicit objective of local value addition.
Agribusiness development: key business capabilities such as sound financial management, bankable business proposal development, marketing, and meeting modern quality standards.
Export: Exporting in respect of Africa itself and of Europe. The Africa Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) offers new importing and marketing opportunities for Ghana's horticultural and cocoa products.

The training approach:
The training sessions are spread out over five training weeks which will take place over the course of  November 2023 until August 2024 in Accra, Ghana. Each training week is divided over three evenings (Tue, Wed, Thu) from 6pm until 9.30pm and one full training day (Friday) from 9.30am until 5pm. The first training will take place 14th-16th November (6pm-9:30pm each night) and a full day training on 17th November (9:30am-5pm). This setup will give you the possibility to attend the training session after work without having to leave your business for several days in a row.
Besides the face to face training sessions, there will be:
- Possibility for individual coaching sessions
- Written feedback on action plan assignments
- Guest speakers
