The aim of the Executive Master in Governance & Development Policy is the acquisition of an overview of development issues by taking an interdisciplinary approach enhanced by a comparative analysis of the various development models. The executive master course includes 10 thematic and geographical modules and is organised into two parts, one for each of the two semesters of the academic year. The first semester is made up of five thematic modules entitled:“Economics of Development”, “Political governance”, “Primary Ressources & Development”, “Environment and Development”, and “Population Growth, Disparities & Migration”. Each module ends with a specific seminar. The second semester is dedicated to case studies according to geographical zones such as “Russia & Central Asia: beyond transition”, “Middle East & North Africa”, “South & East Asia”, “Latin America: making up for lost time” and “Sub-Saharan Africa: from basket case to Development”. Each module ends with a specific seminar.

“It has been a brilliant idea to follow the CERIS Master in Governance and Development policy. I was impressed each time by the top level of lecturers. What is also important, we had the opportunity to actively participate in the lectures by raising as many questions as we wished.”
