Master in Development Management

Master in Development Management

The objective of the training is “to develop management skills and development management policies and programs/projects in the various sectors of socio-economic activities, capable of increasing the quality of the interventions, more adequate to the actual needs of the country and to invest in finding effective solutions to national and regional concerns “.

The training cycle we proposed responds to this challenge: it will seek to reinforce practitioners’ capacity for action in their respective areas of intervention, by providing them with tools and intervention strategies guided by a multidimensional approach to development in solving the country’s socio-economic, political and environmental problems.


The set of curricula will thus focus on the key issues of development, combining, with analytical rigor, a normative approach to development and professional orientation towards development management. Particular attention will be paid to the dynamics of the basic entities for their development.


To achieve such an objective, the acquisition of professional skills is essential:

For specialists in “local development”, they will participate in the development of territorial development policies in their socio-economic and environmental dimension;

While for specialists in “social development”, they will be called upon to lead and animate the implementation of projects, either in their entirety or in certain particular areas, in particular, institutional capacity-building, capacity-building in companies, the promotion of employment, social and professional integration…

And all will be at the heart of a renewal of the public actor and decentralization and are one of the essential links to the implementation of a policy of land use planning and promotion of employment.
