You will also gain knowledge and skills related to financial management, results-based management as well as the participatory approach in project design, implementation and evaluation.
During their course of study, students are given the opportunity to travel abroad to experience the dynamic of development in the field and further develop their areas of interest. Students also participate in Canadian forums and events to improve their professional networks for future employment and to learn about Canada’s unique role and practices in the larger international development context.
