Event Details

The Master of Development Practice prepares students for a career in international development. The degree provides rigorous interdisciplinary training and equips students with the skills they need to address the problems of poverty and sustainable development in the developing world.

The MDP program is jointly administered by the Humphrey School and Interdisciplinary Center for the Study of Global Change (ICGC) and spans several academic units across the University of Minnesota. The degree provides training in policy analysis and management; health and education; natural sciences; social sciences, and interdisciplinary research methods. An international field experience and capstone workshop in development practice also are required.

What Our Graduates Do

People choose this field because they are committed to public service and working on issues of poverty, social justice, and sustainable development in the developing world. As analysts, managers, and leaders, MDP graduates will use interdisciplinary tools and knowledge to develop, assess, and evaluate alternative approaches to current and emerging issues in international development. Their career choices span all levels of government, nongovernmental (NGOs) organizations, and the private sector.

The Humphrey School's MDP information session will allow you to learn more about the program, the admissions process and ask any questions you may have. The information session will be in the Freeman Commons Room 205. Parking information and directions are below for your assistance.
