Course description

This course is offered for students taking part in the Master of Sustainable Development Practice (MDP) Program and for other students who aspire to take part in initiatives that seek to contribute to sustainable development. Professionals who become involved in development practice are often required to assume responsibilities and even provide leadership to processes for which they were not well prepared in their academic programs, for example, in the broad area of Development Administration. Development Administration per se is a recognized sub-field supported by a considerable body of literature related primarily to public administration. However, most attention in this course will be focused on specific tools, processes and concepts linked to the praxis of Development Administration that MDP graduates should be familiar with before embarking on their careers.
