Master of Globalisation and Development Scholarships: The Master’s in Globalisation and Development (GD) approaches the phenomenon of globalisation from an eclectic perspective, considering both the opportunities it creates and threats it poses to development and poverty alleviation in low and middle-income countries, both at the national and the local level.

The programme is intended for participants with work experience in local, regional and/or national government institutions, at research institutes or universities, or with local NGOs, advocacy or entrepreneurial associations, and in international organisations (e.g. international NGOs, bilateral and multilateral institutions).

The candidates should be involved with and have an interest in development or poverty-reduction initiatives, micro or meso-level projects and programmes, and/or macro-level policymaking.
