The Master’s in Development Practice (MDP) at UB is a modular cross-disciplinary program providing skills and knowledge required to better identify and address the global challenges of sustainable development. The MacArthur Foundation (MAF) provided competitive funding to create MDP programmes at over 20 universities worldwide and with it a global network of faculty, students, practitioners and partner organisations.
As one of the nine universities selected by MAF for delivery in August 2010, UB calls for applications for the 2nd cohort of a MDP programme which integrates field studies, a research project, and holistic coursework perspectives by integrating systems thinking, economic, natural resource, health, social, ecological, technological, environmental, legal, and management dimensions. An accreditation of UB’s MDP with a European agency is under way.
Due to its modular mode, the MDP suits, in particular, organisations in regard to their staff development, recruitment and retention needs by enabling convenient access for citizens residential/employed outside Gaborone, less time-consuming and less costly compared to academic competitors in the region. Graduates will be well prepared to confront complex sustainable development challenges in the private or public sector.
