Course content

MSc International Development: Development Management analyses the management, planning and policy-making aspects of the development process.

The course aims to blend theory and practice and seeks to explain policy behaviour through an integrated approach, drawing on a range of disciplinary perspectives.

It is designed for social science graduates, or for those working in institutions involved in the management of development activities in developing countries, such as central and local government, parastatal organisations, NGOs and multilateral or bilateral aid agencies.

The course is ideal if you're looking to acquire the practical skills to manage development interventions in an increasingly challenging field.
