Students from all over the world can now get the support that they need to access a Master’s program that has helped numerous students develop skills which impact social, political and economic developments. EduCo’s Senior Vice President in the United States, Jim Panos, recently formalised an agreement with the Duke Center of International Development, Sanford School of Public Policy at Duke University to recruit international students for their Master of International Development Policy (MIDP) program.
Duke University’s Master of International Development Policy (MIDP) program has paved the way for its graduates to access some of the world’s leading organisations in policymaking such as UNICEF, World Bank, International Finance Corporation, UN Women and Save the Children.
“This partnership offers international students more exposure to a program which provides world class instruction focused on improving social, economic and environmental issues their local markets are currently facing,” says Jim Panos, EduCo’s SVP in the United States.
The MIDP is a boutique, interdisciplinary program designed for early to mid-career professionals and public servants looking to advance their skills in leading global development and policymaking efforts. Duke’s Sanford School of Public Policy is ranked 3rd in environmental policy and 6th in both public policy analysis and social policy according to the U.S. News and World Report. Students get to self-design their curriculum by selecting core seminars and elective courses that suit their international development career goals.
Students can choose from the following areas of focus:
- Applied economics
- Development management & governance
- Environmental management policy
- Innovation & entrepreneurship
- Law & development
- Peace & conflict resolution
- Social policy
