NGOs, ONLUS and United Nations Agencies working in the humanitarian field are some of the biggest transnational organizations in the world. To operate in these organizations, the same professional preparation required by a multinational company is required, in addition to the ability to manage the typical subject matters of international cooperation.
The aim of the Major in International Cooperation for Local Development is to expose the participants to the most relevant operational, methodological, technical and economic tools, to plan, monitor and control any project, with a particular focus on the development cooperation and humanitarian interventions.
Upon completion of the Master, participants will be able to operate as project managers in any transnational organization, including NGOs and International agencies. The theoretical training will be accompanied by an intensive practical path, which will include constant work focused on real projects, as well as a one weeklong, on the field, study trip.
The Major International Cooperation for Local Development is aimed at recent graduates — or those graduating soon — from a variety of cultural backgrounds.
The programme puts students on career paths in a wide range of organizations such as:
- Project Manager for Development and Cooperation
- Project Manager/Desk Officer for international projects
