The Integral Economic Development Management (IEDM) master's program is the first to develop and implement an integrated and dynamic framework of economic analysis that motivate more effective development interventions, foster a more appropriate engagement of emerging new technologies, and achieve more effective and sustainable outcomes. It designs interventions and develops innovative measures to  evaluate the impact and effectiveness of interventions, while teaching applied management and economics skills.

Choose between a one-year, full-time master’s program or flexible part-time option.

Learn applied management and econometrics with an approach to economic science that fosters an integrated way of thinking and provides hands-on experience.

The program provides students with:

  1. An understanding of the role that cultures and institutions play in the development process—in light of an integrated perspective to economic development that is based on sound economic techniques. This program equips students to measure the impact of relational and institutional factors within the economic development process.
  2. The management skills necessary to design, implement, manage, and evaluate development programs—that will achieve integral economic development and build strong institutions capable of supporting successful development initiatives.
  3. An integrated perspective to economic development—one that understands that economic agents are fundamentally social and relational beings who make decisions and maximize as such, while embedded in complex institutional reality. It recognized the dignity of the human person, the good of the family, and the good of the community as foundational principles of economic development.
  4. Hands-on experience—the completion of an Applied Research Project provides the opportunity of putting into practice what was learned.
