ROLE OF THE COLLEGE OF BUSINESS EDUCATION (CBE) IN THE FAST GROWING BUSINESS IN THE ENERGY AND MINERAL SECTOR IN TANZANIA

George Sylvester Oging

Abstract


The energy and mineral sector is now being viewed as one of the major players in Tanzania’s economic development. While extensive explorations of oil, natural gas and various types of valuable minerals are ongoing in the upstream operations as well as business in the downstream processes, the apparent deficiency in the national expertise due to the infancy of the industry suggests undertaking of the necessary actions to address it in order for the country to benefit tangibly from the endowed natural resources.  The objective of this paper is to view the CBE present capacity and then assess its capacity building needs in order to address the national expertise needs for the industry downstream operations of transportation, distribution and marketing. The College can competently play the role given the relevant diversification of it’s curriculum disciplines.  After analysis of the diversification programme and the requisite needs for the capacity building process, subsequent procedure will entail development of suitable training programme by the college to address the major activities in the fields of transportation, distribution and marketing. Suitable curricula and competent teaching staff will have to be developed. The College will therefore be enabled to produce experts relevant to the needs of the growing business in the energy and mineral sector annually starting with National Technical Award Levels 7&8.  Enhanced business practices in the energy and mineral sector will have implications for the national micro and macro-economic development. Business development in the energy sector is both technical and capital intensive and may have implications for the theory. Collaboration with the relevant parties will greatly improve all implications.
