Why this program? How it benefits us? 

Every year, thousands of graduates are produced from different universities in Somaliland having knowledge from text-books, traditional and modern based theories and practices.  However, what different skilled graduates are really demanded by various organizations is ignored in this process.  To fill this gap, P G Diploma in Economic Development is one of our beginning attempts.
