About this course
The United Nations’ global strategy is to empower communities to help themselves and deliver 17 Sustainable Development Goals by 2030. This challenging target is at the heart of the work of many of the estimated 10 million Non Governmental Organisations around the world.
This Master’s course is designed to develop future managers for social development organisations that are working on this agenda. Skills development is central to the course which includes an international placement providing management experience in this field. This builds on knowledge of collaborative working, risk management, financial management, project management, decision-making, social development, organisations and using technology fostered through experiential learning.
