Are you ready to make a real impact? Do you choose actual climate improvement, equality and fair trade?
In this study programme, you will turn your commitment into action and develop into a specialist in international development. As a specialist, you understand the interests of the various parties, achieving cooperation and sustainability together. You will be able to work worldwide with your knowledge: places range from nature reserves in Uganda and coffee plantations in Peru to the climate lobby in Brussels. Finding a balance between people, the earth and prosperity is paramount during your studies. Not from behind a desk, but in practice and in direct contact. You can choose from three specialisations: building societies after disasters, a better future for rural populations or fair chains from raw material to consumer. In any event, you will learn to unite people from different cultural and social environments, defend various interests and facilitate innovation. This study programme is an exciting breeding ground in which students with countless ideas and backgrounds work together towards one common goal: a fair society and a healthy earth. We are waiting for you!
