Economic growth may improve quality of life and promote prosperity, but its negative impact on the environment is indisputable. By accelerating climate change, the global economy is heightening and exacerbating the difficulties faced by the most vulnerable members of society—thus widening the inequality gap.

The decisions that must be made in order to design and implement solutions to local or global challenges are not easy. A quick resolution of conflict may prevent immediate violence, but if not carried out correctly, it can also jeopardize political pacts, undermine human rights and ultimately lead to greater upheaval.

The Master in International Development provides students with the tools they’ll need to tackle these global challenges by developing innovative and sustainable solutions. To this end, the curriculum encompasses the 5 P’s defined by the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development: People, Planet, Prosperity, Peace, and Partnership.
