The Management Development Institute (MDI) was established in 1982 as a body corporate to trainGambian citizens to develop managerial skills in planning and implementation of development programmes, and to promote the development of administrative effectiveness and enhance professional competence in management. MDI carries out this mandate through six core programme areas:
