International Development Policy and Management Specialization
Work Across Borders
The International Development Policy and Management specialization prepares students with an interest in international development to appreciate and confront the challenges of implementing complex public service policies and programs in different international contexts.
You'll learn a unique comparative interdisciplinary skill set that bridges cutting-edge conceptual thinking, critical policy analysis and evaluation techniques, and concrete management skills. You’ll also learn how public and nonprofit institutional structures and managerial processes vary around the world in important and evolving ways, and how major international agencies function.
