Practice-oriented training to meet challenging professional environments

While useful for a number of different career paths, the programme is geared towards preparing students for roles in organisations focusing on development and international economics. Those seeking to establish or advance their careers in the context of newly industrialised and developing countries stand to gain substantial benefits from MIDE. Our graduates are particularly well suited for positions in government departments, banks, consultancies, multinational firms, chambers of commerce, universities and other educational institutions.

With accreditation as a Master's degree programme by ACQUIN (Accreditation, Certification and Quality Assurance Institute), the MIDE programme also provides students with the postgraduate credentials needed to pursue PhD opportunities.
