The Erasmus Mundus International Masters in Rural Development (IMRD) program offers the opportunity to study international visions on rural development to students both from within as outside of the European Union.


Students are offered the opportunity to become a specialist in integrated rural development, through a two year master programme jointly organised by six European leading institutes in Agricultural Economics and Rural Development, in collaboration with several partners in the United States, China, Ecuador, India and South Africa.


The European Union, through the Erasmus Mundus programme, offers each year a limited number of Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree scholarships to the most awarding students.


All information is also available on the following website: 

Applications are currently opened and foreseen to be closed on March 15th 2015

Students from different institutions can contribute to an enhanced shared knowledge on rural development approaches and experiences worldwide, a wider diffusion of knowledge about the European model of rural development, and eventually a general increased interaction between EU and non-EU countries with respect to research, practices and policies of rural development.
