Development managers are often called upon to undertake investigations that contribute to changes in practice and policy. The development management project, the final, compulsory element of the MSc in Development Management, provides an opportunity to learn, develop and practise the skills required for such an undertaking. The project is individually chosen, the choice determined by your own passions and priorities. The process is guided by learning from previous modules of the masters degree. And the product is a report that makes the case for change in the understanding of, and/or the practice and policy related to, a significant development management problem.
