What framework is needed to ensure sustainable development and an effective distribution of wealth that generates equality of opportunities for the person and for societies?
This is the question that matters the most to us in the IEDM program, and that we believe is the motive that drives you to pursue your career in development.
Through interaction with colleagues, faculty and leadership in economic development we prepare you to overcome the challenges faced in achieving sustainable development in the public and private context at the local, national and international level. It takes a great level of commitment, wisdom, magnanimity, and passion to become an agent of change, i.e., an IEDM student.
What Makes Our Program Unique

The garduate programs propose new metrics that contribute to the improvement of traditional measures of development and objective interventions' evaluation.

These skills include accounting, econometrics, management, finance, qualitative and quantitative market research, and project development; in the context of the interplay between the areas of politics, global health, food and nutrition, energy and environment, education in developing countries, and community development.
Public or Private Sector Concentrations
