Advanced Master of Development Evaluation and Management
Institute of Development Policy and Management, University of Antwerp (IOB), Belgium; 12 months – in English – possibility for research internship/dissertation field work in the South. Start: mid-September
The Master in Development Evaluation and Management focuses on the efforts made by a wide range of public and private actors to promote development. It provides a solid understanding of the past and present aid policies of multilateral and bilateral donors, also addressing the major aid modalities and instruments deployed. The institutional characteristics of the actors involved - be they governments, community-based organisations, international NGOs, bilateral or multilateral donors - are analysed in order to attain a better understanding of processes and outcomes. The theoretical perspective is that development can be understood as a set of interlocking collective action problems. The Master programme offers methodological and practical insight into development evaluation, its relevance and challenges.
The programme offers two tracks with specific objectives and courses:
Track 1: National Institutions, Poverty Reduction Strategies and Aid.
This track focuses on the analysis of the interaction between national institutions, local politics and external actors (macro level).
Track 2: Development Interventions and Local Institutional Change.
This track conceptualises socio-political and economic development as the outcome of interactions between a conditioning institutional environment and the agency of local, national and international actors (micro level).
The Master’s programme comprises 12 months, starting and ending mid-September, and consists of four modules.
The first module (Theories of Development, Research Methods I and II) provides an overview of theories of development and gives students up-to-date knowledge of research methods and techniques, both general and programme-specific.
In modules II (Evaluating Development effec

Development Evaluation and Management (MA)
Master; Institute of Development Policy and Management, University of Antwerp (IOB) Programme Structure: The three IOB Master programmes each have a similar structure. The first three modules are devoted to seminars and coursework. The first introduces theories of development and teaches research methods and techniques, both general and programme-specific. Modules II and III offer research-driven and highly interactive teaching specific to each of the programmes. After the completion of module II, students can choose between two options for module III. In module IV students undertake a personal project supervised by a research tutor. The resulting dissertation may consist of a study of the relevant literature or may be the result of hands-on experience, or a combination of both. The dissertation is the subject of a public presentation.
Programme content: The Master’s in Development Evaluation and Management focuses on the efforts made by a wide range of public and private actors to promote development in low-income countries. It provides a solid understanding of past and present aid policies of multilateral and bilateral donors, and of the major aid modalities and instruments deployed. The institutional characteristics of the actors involved – be they governments, community-based organisations, international NGOs, bilateral or multilateral donors – are analysed so as to attain a better understanding of processes and outcomes. The theoretical perspective is that development can be understood as a set of interlocking collective action problems, on both the recipient and the donor side. The Master’s programme offers methodological and practical insights into development evaluation, its relevance and challenges. Most of our students are engaged in development, profes-sionally and/or as researchers. The Master’s will improve their capacity to assess the strengths and weaknesses of the pre-vailing aid paradigms and the changing approaches to aid. Students will learn to

Impact Evaluation for International Development (MSc)
Master; School of International Development, University of East Anglia (DEV) The MSc Impact Evaluation for International Development degree offers familiarisation with and skills in the basics of modern evidence-based policy and Impact Evaluation, including the contexts and practices of evaluation, research design and data production for evaluation, and basic and more advanced methods of quantitative and qualitative analysis. Teaching materials are drawn from the development literature and iconic Impact Evaluation case studies.
Impact evaluation has become an important tool in development research and policy making, with multilateral and bilateral donor agencies and developing country governments widely committed to funding and utilising high quality impact evaluation evidence.
Evidence-based policy needs understandings of who benefits from interventions, by how much, why, and under what circumstances. It also needs to appreciate the costs and benefits of interventions and evaluations.
