The Sustainable Development Management master’s programme links and incorporates the relevant subjects of different academic disciplines, including economics, political sciences and project management methods. This provides our students with a broad perspective that is necessary to make a significant contribution to the academic debate about sustainable development, and prepares them with up-to-date methods in order for them to be able to implement successful development projects. To this end, our curriculum is aligned with the project cycle: the coursework delivers the required skills to not only successfully identify, design, plan, and implement development projects, but also to critically evaluate existing projects. This guarantees that our students are highly valuable assets for employers in both the public and private sector. The overall aim of the programme is to train future professionals, who are enabled to play a part in the implementation of the 17 sustainable development goals, thereby contributing to create a more equitable and sustainable world.
