1.  Introduction

 

A vibrant system of postgraduate education is essential if Ethiopia is to achieve its ambition to be a middle income country in the near future. In order to address socioeconomic and environmental challenges facing Ethiopia and to ensure a lasting economic development, postgraduate knowledge and skills are profoundly important. The postgraduate trainings enhance skills and knowledge of graduate students in their field of study.Being research degrees, postgraduate trainings can also help trainees to demonstrate their ability to think independently and work towards a goal. Postgraduate studies can facilitate entry into the job market with ease and hence add value to undergraduate studies that offer limited job opportunities. In sum, the postgraduate education can help to produce highly qualified and skilled professionals who are able to finding viable solutions to the issues of sustainable human development especially in poverty reduction, education, natural resource governance, etc. In light of these justifications, the school of graduate studies was established in Dilla University in 2010.
