The Human Resources and Development Management pathway is aimed at those who are interested in management in the public, state or NGO sectors in developing, transitional or newly-industrialised countries. This is primarily a public sector management, not a business management, programme, although some of the themes covered are relevant to both sectors. The pathway encourages students to consider and analyse how a changing global environment has shaped the ways in which work is organized and managed and how ideas about leadership and management may be applied differently across cultures and contexts.

The pathway explores the relationship between hard and soft approaches to the analysis and practice of management, for example between human resources management and human resource development, between leadership and management and between vertical bureaucracy and decentralised collaborative management. The pathway considers the interaction between organizational structure, culture, power and motivation in public administration and in international organizations.

Who is the programme for?

The programme is designed for officials, policy analysts and researchers concerned with economic and social development. They may work in central or local government, public enterprises, non-governmental organisations, and research or training organisations. The programme is also appropriate for those who are hoping to enter a career in the field of development.

MSc in Development Management

This MSc provides learning opportunities, culminating in a research project that will enhance your capacity to manage development. If you have responsibility for development interventions, you will find your practice challenged and developed. If you are a professional – engineer, health worker, educationalist, banker, for example – working in development contexts, you will develop an understanding of those contexts, and a grasp of the skills necessary to negotiate them. And if you are thinking about moving into development work, you will find a guide to the world you are entering and build up a variety of skills needed to manage development.

Key features of the course

• Links a critical understanding of theory with the realities of development, policy and practice
• Develops key skills, including strategic thinking and planning, relationship building, mapping and modelling, negotiation and brokering
• Builds the research skills needed to create evidence-based understandings of development management problems and to make cases for change
• Encourages critically reflective practice, produces practitioners willing and competent to ask questions about how development is being managed, and how it might be managed better.

This qualification is eligible for a Postgraduate Loan available from Student Finance England.

This course examines the central issues facing developing countries in today’s globalised world, giving you the skills for a job in development and the wider sectors.

You’ll be equipped with all the practical skills that are in great demand in development agencies. But you’ll also gain insight across the wider picture, understanding how developing countries can progress and how the poor can be mobilised to escape from the poverty trap.

The course also explores how NGOs can play a key role in promoting social and economic progress and you’ll develop the ability to identify, design and implement programmes with a view to engaging with and enhancing the situation of the poor.

Our students and staff are a diverse group from different backgrounds and your tutors have expertise in many key development regions and countries from South Asia and Latin America to Middle East and Africa.

WHAT YOU WILL STUDY

The course consists of four modules and a dissertation. The full-time MSc takes one year to complete and the part-time course is completed over two years.

You’ll learn about development management in the international context and the impact of globalisation. We focus on public management and the role of aid agencies and NGOs in development and encourage you to gain general conceptual, critical and evaluative skills.

Our Project and Programme Design module will give you insight into a range of approaches to development interventions, including design, implementation and management. The course introduces design methods used by NGOs and aid agencies as well as important issues such as sustainability and alternatives to the project approach.

We’ll also teach you how to examine rationales for research and a range of investigative techniques. This will help you prepare for your dissertation in which you’ll demonstrate your ability to use theories from earlier modules alongside your own research findings.

YOUR FUTURE CAREER

This course has a strong focus on employability and is specifically designed to give you the skills to work for development agencies, NGOs and in the wider development sector.

The experience and contacts of our staff will help you set up placements in the UK, Africa, Asia or Latin America and gain more understanding of how the sector works.

You’ll gain the experience and knowledge either to further your career in NGO and development management or to use your skills within the area to enhance the role you are already playing.

Our students who have worked in the field before have found that after the course, they are in a much better position to apply for more senior jobs across the development sector with the extra practical and critical thinking skills they have developed.

If you’ve not been involved in NGOs or development management previously, the course will give you the knowledge and practical skills which are highly sought after by development agencies.

About the MSc programme

Development is not just about increasing growth and political and social rights. It is about creating self-sustaining institutions that liberate societies from low level deprivation traps by increasing productivity, freedom and cooperative interdependence. The MSc in Development Management gives you the theory and practical tools to drive such transformations forward by enabling you to understand why some societies have succeeded and others have failed.

The programme is built around a theory-led approach to the role of institutions and organisations in development, using both classical institutional theory and the new institutional economics. We go very deeply into the role of institutions in explaining the comparative statics of development - why some countries are rich and others poor - as well as comparative dynamics - the development process per se across different countries and regions. A distinctive feature of the programme is the Development Management Project, which will give you the opportunity to do live consulting work for real-world, public, private, and non-profit organisations, such as the World Bank, Oxfam, PricewaterhouseCoopers, GIZ, CARE, DFID, Save the Children, UNICEF, and the Emerging Markets Group.

Graduate destinations

The analytical skills developed here have secured past graduates promising careers in organisations as diverse as central banks, NGOs, multilateral organisations, charities, investment banks, consultancies, manufacturing firms, religious missions, and as independent experts and writers.

Throughout this Master’s degree, you will develop management techniques and skills, and the ability to apply them in a development context.

Through empirical research and analysis, you will have the opportunity to develop specialist expertise in a particular aspect of development management.

The course is designed to prepare you for a career in development management with an international organisation, a non-governmental body or a government development agency. Our graduates are NGO programme officers, trade advisors, project managers, micro finance specialists and development consultants. Some of our graduates have also set up their own development charities or proceeded to PhD research and teaching.

Course content

Our regular contributors to teaching and learning activities include experienced field practitioners drawn from international development organisations and NGOs.

Active and enquiry-led learning is a central learning method on the course. Learning is based studying on real-world case studies with official project materials and survey data from the World Bank, International Monetary Fund and other development agencies.

As part of this course, you have the opportunity to obtain a PRINCE2 Foundation certification in project management.

A highlight for many students are the field trips and social events organised throughout the course which provide an opportunity for networking and extending learning in new environments.

You will also benefit from free access to part of the material on the course reading list.

Modules

The following modules are indicative of what you will study on this course.

Core modules
-Current Issues in International Development
-Development Economics and Policy
-Human Resource Strategies for the International Manager
-International Development Finance
-Managing Data
-Managing Development Interventions
-Project
-Research Methods

Option modules
You can choose one option module from the University's postgraduate programme, subject to approval by the Course Leader. This gives the unique benefit of allowing you to choose according to your past academic studies, work experience or, perhaps, in line with your future career pathways or interests.

Accredited internship

All students on our full-time business Masters courses can apply to undertake the PG/MBA Internship Programme Reflective Practitioner Module. This is an 8 week unpaid accredited internship, which can be taken in addition to option modules and will help students to gain invaluable work experience. The internships, which are with London-based organisations, take place during the summer period. To apply, students must submit a completed application form and a copy of their updated CV to the Business Experience Team; the team then shortlist from the applications and conduct group meetings with the applicants.

Ultimately it is up to our internship employers to decide whether they would like to interview the candidate(s) and offer him/her an internship. We have received very positive feedback from both postgraduate students and employers and expect that the internship programme will continue to remain popular amongst our students.

Associated careers

The course will particularly suit those seeking to work within NGOs and the international development community (including the World Bank, IMF, central and development banks, and government economic planning directorates), as self-employed development specialists or consultants, or as trade attaché in foreign diplomatic offices.

Should you wish to complete the PRINCE2 project management qualification, this will also enable you to work with multinational corporations where, alongside good technical skills, an awareness of global development issues and challenges and the ability to think critically about the world are valued.

Graduates from the programme have worked as specialists advisers with top NGOs across the globe and as advisers with trade and economic departments in government offices. Others are currently working as development consultants, microfinance specialists and as advisors on United Nations-sponsored projects.

About the MSc programme

This programme is offered by the Department of Anthropology with the assistance of the Department of International Development.

Anthropology and development are tightly entwined: this programme brings together essential elements of both. It combines crucial anthropological insights into - and critiques of - economic globalisation and social transformation with proactive approaches to beneficial change.

The core International Development component of the programme uses classical institutional theory and new institutional economics to understand the role of institutions and organisations in development, giving you the theory and practical tools to drive social transformations forward.

The Development Management Project will allow you to apply your knowledge as together with a team, you undertake "live" consulting work for real-world, public, private, and non-profit organisations.

The core Anthropology components of the programme offer a comprehensive study of how anthropologists have understood globalisation and other economic transformations. You will learn how anthropologists have both changed practices from within as well as critiqued them from the outside. The programme also offers anthropological insights into new forms of production, consumption, exchange and financial circulation that have emerged since the 1980s.

Graduate destinations

The programme provides ideal preparation for research work in anthropology, international development and related fields.
