African Journal of Economic and Management Studies
The design and implementation of pro-growth and anti-poverty policies and strategies remain a major challenge in all Sub-Saharan African countries. It is widely acknowledged among African policy makers, business leaders, donor organisations and the academic community that private enterprise-driven economic growth provides a greater promise for absolute poverty reduction through lowering the levels of real unemployment and strengthening individuals' capacity to care for themselves and their families. Growth-orientated economic policy and business strategy formulation and implementations in Africa have, however, been weak due to the dearth of knowledge about factors that can ensure sustainable business and economic growth. African managers and policy makers are therefore in constant search of performance enhancing management practices. African Journal of Economic and Management Studies (AJEMS) therefore aims to advance both theoretical and empirical research, inform policies and practices, and improve understanding of how economic and business decisions shape the lives of Africans.
