The Economic Society of Tanzania (EST), has become the next organization in East Africa to reach a partnership agreement with the Institute of Certified Chartered Economists, ICCE.
EST is a non-profit organization of economists and other professionals interested in economics. It is committed to promoting economic research and economic policy advocacy in Tanzania and beyond.
The Institute of Certified Chartered Economists (ICCE) on the other hand, is a leading global professional body providing the Chartered Economist designation program.
The Institute is dedicated to equipping economics professionals with the needed skill sets, expertise, and qualifications that help them to rise to the top of their chosen career paths, and thus, shape the future of their industries.
The two organizations are working towards a collaboration that will offer members of the EST an opportunity to pursue the Chartered Economist designation program offered by the ICCE.
Through this partnership, EST members as well as professionals in Tanzania interested in pursuing the Chartered Economist program will enjoy special scholarships and discounts.
Speaking on behalf of the EST, the Deputy Acting CEO, Aneth Noah, had this to say.
“Partnering with a global professional body for economists such as ICCE is exactly what we need at this point in the EST.” As a society, we are constantly working to improve member values.
“We trust that all our members will take advantage of this opportunity to obtain the Chartered Economist designation offered by the ICCE”
According to Paul Frimpong, the Global Head of Membership of the ICCE, “We find partnerships with institutions such as the EST to be very valuable.”
“We are aggressively working with multiple economic societies in different countries. This is because we are bringing extra value to their members through our Chartered Economist designation program”
The two organizations have stated their commitment to helping improve economic education and to raising more professionals who are held to the highest ethical standards as economists in Tanzania and beyond.
