  • 15 March 2017

The Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree in International Development Studies (GLODEP) is a two-year multidisciplinary master program in development studies, with an economic grounding and policy perspective. GLODEP has a fixed structure: first semester at Palacky University (Olomouc, Czech Republic), second semester at the University of Auvergne (Clermont-Ferrand, France) and third semester at the University of Pavia (Pavia, Italy). The fourth semester is dedicated to an internship or research stay, preferably with one of the fourteen associated partners of the consortium and to thesis writing.

The aim of GLODEP is to prepare professionals in the field of development policy and practice. GLODEP provides the students with comprehensive knowledge and skills to analyze development issues and to design and promote development policies at national, regional and international levels. GLODEP has two defining features. First, it links the areas of development studies and development economics, offering insights from economics and other fields, such as geography, environmental studies, and political science. Second, the applied character of the program is reflected in the course contents where the policy (project) dimension is emphasized.

The program provides the students with an opportunity to obtain:

multi-disciplinary knowledge of development issues, grounded in development studies and development economics; ability to analyze development problems and to design and promote development policies and projects for the specific context of a developing area or a sector; ability to work in an international environment and in multi- and inter-disciplinary teams, and communicate to a non-expert audience.
