Public Relation and Communication

Ethiopia has yet to develop a critical mass of well-trained human resource able to generate and translate knowledge for societal benefit. This capacity is crucial in order to competitively articulate, negotiate, plan, implement and evaluate the country’s development strategies geared to poverty alleviation. The higher institutions in the country are responsible to undertake and encourage research, community and consultancy services in national and local priority areas. The tremendous expansion made in all levels of education as well as the growth enrollment rate of students at all levels becomes an opportunity for higher education institutions in general and Debre Markos University in particular.

Debre Markos University is one of the public universities which have a huge plan to expand quality education, demand driven researches and consultancy community services in cooperation with strategic collaborative partners. With increasing demand in higher education from the society, the university has a far reaching ambition to provide education in more accessible manner to those disadvantaged by limited time and physical distance and hence update the knowledge base of the people at their places of work.

Of which, 1,461 are graduate students and the rest are undergraduate students. DMU has been working hard to assure the quality & relevance of academic programs.
