The desire to establish a graduate school of management can be traced back to resolution 318(XIII)adopted at the fourth session of the conference of ministers which met Kinshasa. The resolution in part requested the Executive Secretary of UNECA to promote the development of appropriate African multi nation's-regional training institutions and programs designed to meet Africa’s present and future manpower needs using, wherever feasible and desirable, existing national or multinational institutions. After conducting the study, which was largely qualitative, the consultants recommended the establishment of seven graduate schools in the long run, using existing educational institutions, and four were to be established immediately in West, Eastern/Southern Africa, North and Central Africa. In the case of eastern and southern African sub-region, consultants recommended that the faculty of commerce, university of Nairobi host the graduate school.
