This program is specially designed for students who wish to acquire in-depth understanding and knowledge in the field of development.

The program should be of interest to those who plan to seek a position or a career with a wide range of development-related institutions at the macro or micro levels. Examples include United Nations agencies, The World Bank, bilateral donor representative offices or projects, non-governmental organizations, and development finance institutions.
