Faculty of Society and Economics, Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences With the adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the international community has sent a strong signal for a new global partnership: developing countries, emerging countries and industrialized countries have agreed on 17 ambitious goals for sustainable global development (SDGs). To implement the 2030 Agenda, international organizations need highly qualified experts with a broad understanding of the diverse development topics and problems to implement projects.
The master's program in Sustainable Development Management integrates and connects the parts of economics and political science relevant to sustainable development. These are supplemented by empirical methods and modules of project management. This combination gives you the necessary qualifications to help shape both the academic discourse on sustainable development and project practice. Our courses are based on the project cycle: You learn to successfully plan, implement, critically question and evaluate sustainable development projects.
Graduates of Sustainable Development Management from Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences will be valuable employees who are highly sought after by various institutions in the fields of technical as well as financial development cooperation. Moreover, the strong focus of the master’s programme on project management gives our students an additional edge in the labour market.
