The consortium involves Francophone and Anglophone countries and will promote bilingual aptitude in students throughout the implementation of the programme. Language will not be an obstacle in access to study. However, expansion of foreign language study will be reinforced

Universities Programs Description Outcomes
University of Abomey-Calavi MSc in Biotechnology and Plant Breeding This program aims at endowing its graduates with skills and knowledge in genetics, plant breeding and agricultural biotechnology to promote innovative research for agricultural development. Graduates will be able to conduct basic and applied research in the fields of biotechnology, plant breeding and seed ecology. They can also work as entrepreneurs or policy makers for national or international organizations.
University of Abomey-Calavi PhD in Plant Genetic Resources and Crop Protection This PhD intends to produce high level scientists with the knowledge and experience required to direct or lead research related to plant genetic resources for food and agriculture or plant protection. Graduates will be able to develop improved crop varieties that could fit the different agro-ecological regions of the country, contribute to advancing knowledge and innovation for the formulation of policies in the fields of plant protection.
Jimma University MSc in Plant Breeding This multidisciplinary program will provide students with strong theoretical and practical knowledge in plant breeding. Students will also be required to do community based training programmes to identify crop problem in neighboring farms and propose solutions. At the end of this programme, graduates will be equipped with the skills needed to engage in teaching in the field of plant breeding at various levels or provide technical expertise to seed enterprises among others.
Jimma University Master in Plant Biotechnology This programme aims at fostering the use of new technologies to enhance plant breeding and solve crop production constraints. It emphasizes on molecular biology, molecular marker technology or recombinant DNA technology. Graduates of this programmes will be capable of carrying out both basic and applied research in the area of plant biotechnology in academic and/or industries, as well as transferring plant biotechnology knowledge to the farmers for a wider application in agriculture.
Jimma University PhD in Plant Breeding The PhD programme aims at producing highly qualified graduates with the necessary skills to undertake teaching, research, extension and decision-making in plant breeding and plant biotechnology. The graduates will be able of teaching, conducting research and managing plant genetic resources for food and agriculture.
University of KwaZulu-Natal MSc in Plant Breeding The objective of the programme is to increase the mass of plant breeders and emphasize the use of modern plant breeding tools and data management. At the end of this programme, students will acquire sufficient knowledge and competencies to use modern breeding tools in industry and public breeding sector with a minimum of induction period. They may also become entrepreneurs in the domain of plant breeding.
University of KwaZulu-Natal PhD in Plant Breeding Students will be trained in the breeding of African crops in and African environment to make a significant impact on the improvement of food crops in their home countries. Graduates will be capable of extending knowledge in the field of plant breeding in Africa (biotechnology, plant breeding and seed systems).
