Development Studies

Inequality, conflict, climate change, gender, migration, poverty, globalisation, sustainable development… Are these the global challenges that you want to contribute to? 

The Institute of Development Policy (IOB) organises three advanced master programmes:

  • ‘Master in Governance and Development’,
  • ‘Master in Globalisation and Development’
  • and the ‘Master in Development Evaluation and Management’.

Each year some 70 students from all over the world study at IOB and become a change agent for development!
