Summary or Abstract : The purpose of this study is: (a) to give an account of a bilateral project to develop a graduate training degree program in higher education in Somalia and (b) to contribute to a better understanding of the assessment of the external and internal factors that enhanced or hindered the accomplishment of the Somali Management Training and Development Project (SOMTAD).Two main research questions were presented as guidelines for this study: (1) to what extent were SOMTAD project's goals and objectives addressed and accomplished during the lifetime of the project? (2) To what extent were SOMTAD's academic goals affected by the internal/external (political, cultural and socioeconomic environments that occurred in Somalia since the inception of the project?A historical case study approach is employed for this study. The methodology followed consists of the critical review of the documents, reports, and structured personal interview is conducted with former individuals who were associated either directly or indirectly with the project.Among the findings of the study include the following: (1) During the lifetime of the SOMTAD project (1980-1990), the academic component of the SOMTAD project was successful in pulling together a team of dedicated administrators, faculty, and the Somali counterparts who were determined to achieve the academic goals of the SOMTAD project. (2) The contractors and sub-contractors of the SOMTAD project developed and delivered American management know-how to various ministries in Somalia. (3) The MBA/MPA degree program trained 210 Somali students in three Cohorts. By December 1990, when the civil war reached Mogadishu, 32 out of 55 Somali students of Cohort I (58.2 ) completed their theses at SUNYA and was awarded the MBA/MPA degree. Eleven students (20 ) left the program, Twelve and half percent (21.8 ) completed only the course work. By January 1991, 60 Cohort II students completed their course work at SIDAM, and were prepared to come at University at Albany, however, this never happened because the project was terminated due to the civil war in Mogadishu. By the time the SOMTAD project was terminated on February 1991, 40 Cohort III students completed their fourth coursework at SIDAM, and had selected their MBA/MPA degree track. (4) The data on Somali counterparts revealed that those in the MBA/MPA program enhanced their knowledge of American management systems, and learned new ways and methods of delivering lectures through their interaction with the American faculty..
