Revenue Diversification and Resource Utilisation Options for Ethiopian Universities in the Face of Declining Public Funding

"Public universities in Ethiopia mainly rely on government financing. This dependence on the government means that the funding levels depend on the fluctuations of government resources. Meanwhile, it is untenable to depend on public money to finance all the operations of the universities because government resources can only be meagre given the competing needs in the country. Additionally, universities need stable and reliable sources of funds."
