HTW Berlin University of Applied Sciences is taking applications for DAAD scholarships for the Master of Arts in International and Development Economics, commencing in 2022.
Over the duration of 18 months, the Master’s degree program in International and Development Economics (MIDE) at HTW Berlin gets students ready for the responsible and demanding work required in the context of development. Scholars gain a detailed working understanding of the economic and political international context in which developing nations are integrated. The intense theoretical and methodological training offered equips MIDE graduates with a comprehensive understanding of the socio-economic techniques and theories required to address crucial problems in developing nations. The broad range of optional programs allows scholars to shape their professional profile based on their preferences.
MIDE graduates are perfectly equipped to work in development corporations or global organisations. Featuring a broad range of programs to choose from, ranging from “Project Planning and Evaluation” to “Agricultural Economics in Less Developed Countries (LDCs)”, MIDE offers students with a comprehensive education. By merging theoretical knowledge with hands-on expertise, graduates are capable of examining the current challenges of development and creating actionable strategies for meeting them.
