International Development: Bridging the Worlds of Theory, Policy and Practice

The essential course to prepare professionals for working in the expanding field of international development

Institute for the Study of International Development, McGill University, Montreal


The intensive 5-day course is a practical program designed to provide participants with the requisite knowledge, skills and strategies to prepare themselves for opportunities to work in the expanding field of international development and in a number of international development settings.
The program is designed for individuals who have work experience and are interested in working overseas and/or pursuing careers in international development. It is ideal for people looking to manage a major career transition into the realm of international development including public servants, NGO officers, private sector employees and those who are interested in enhancing their knowledge and understanding of important global issues and trends. 

The Institute for the Study of International Development (ISID) periodically organizes informal post-program discussions for participants in the Program. (Using Skype for people outside of Montréal) These will be led by ISID staff and may include members of ISID's Leadership Council. The goal of the calls will be to discuss strategies for finding employment domestically and internationally in the field of international development.

*ISID's Executive Education courses do not count for credit towards a degree at McGill University.
