01/ Objectives

The goal of this master programme is to train present and future actors of development to be able to devise realistic and original policy reforms and programs based on a sound economic analysis and well adjusted to the social and political context of a country.

At the end of their training, graduates are in a position to:

  • to design and implement innovative programmes of economics and human development,
  • to understand and assess the models and methods used by international organizations, foreign governments and consultants in development assistance and international economic relations,
  • to play an educational role, in particular by clarifying to local decision-makers and to the general public the rationale and usefulness of economic reforms in their local context.

At the end of their training, graduates will also be able to:

  • communicate clearly and persuasively both in English (written and oral) as well as in graphical form
  • manage a project, integrate and work within a team, and exercise leadership

02/ Training content

 

The academic year begins with the « Concepts and Methods » class - a review of the basic concepts in economics and quantitative methods. The programme is then organized around two main themes. The first axis studies poverty and institutional structures required for effective functioning of a market economy in the context of developing countries. The second axis analyzes macroeconomic and trade policies that promote economic growth and macroeconomic stability in a context of poor countries, emphasizing their effects on the well-being of local people.

Each axis comprises five to six learning activities. Each learning activity includes 30 hours. Moreover, the programme comprises a personnel project that each student has to develop under the guidance of a professor and a teaching assistant. The table below summarizes the learning activities of the programme.
