Study Management of Development

The Master of Management and Development at the Van Hall Larenstein, University of Applied Sciences is designed for mid-career development professionals, with a background in rural development or agriculture. This top-rated programme is renowned for its international learning environment, team projects and linking theory and practice. 

Relevant work experience is essential to the course, as students contribute and use their previously obtained know-how. Graduates are competent rural development professionals prepared to support service delivery organisations, private and government agencies, Non-Governmental Organisations (NGO) or other development-related organisations in the area of food security, communication, innovation and social inclusion.

MOD

So, if you wish to enhance your professional performance and contribute to organisations’ programmes and policies, then join the Management of Development Master programme.

The Master in Management of Development offers three specialisations:

  • Disaster Risk Management 
  • Food Security 
  • Social Inclusion, Gender and Youth (RDG)

Disaster Risk Management

Within an increasingly complex and dynamic context, graduates are trained and equipped to enhance community resilience of communities and reduce the impact of crises and disasters on sustainable development. Graduates have acquired new insights and know how to use innovative approaches, which have proved their potential to build community resilience to better manage risks as required by the nature of today’s crises and disasters. By looking through a disaster and conflict lens, graduates can make an important contribution to sustainable development.

Food Security 

Food Security specialists explore effective responses to mal- and undernourishment, by defining needs, constraints, coping strategies and opportunities for small scale producers in rural communities. In selecting appropriate context-specific interventions, which reflect understanding of the local context in its wider context, they consider stakeholder relationships and how collaboration could be organised to each stakeholder’s benefit while helping farmers to safeguard their ability to ensure local food security. In the face of globalisation, slow economic growth and political instability, specialists may design and implement responses for (non-)governmental organisations or partners in the private sector, in the form of projects, programmes, market structures or policies.

Social Inclusion, Gender and Youth

Specialists in Social Inclusion, Gender and Youth contribute to inclusive transformation of social processes that improve circumstances for marginalised people to take part in society. Recognising that equal access to markets and social services, influence over decisions affecting one’s life and young people as key drivers of innovation, entrepreneurship and prosperity will increase security over livelihood and improve social economic conditions for everyone, specialists may design interdisciplinary projects to mainstream social inclusion and reduce inequities. As agents for community development, they may be managers, coordinators or consultants in a (non-)governmental organisation or in the private sector.
