Ideal student profile

Those interested in enrolling in the GLOBED master's degree will ideally respond to one of the following two profiles. Graduates in education or other social sciences whose objective is to continue developing professionally in the field of education and development (conducting research activities, political evaluations, development cooperation and consultant services, etc.). Professionals working in policy formulation departments, mainly in countries of the South, whose objectives are to update their knowledge and capacities in the field and, especially, to improve their research skills. Having professionals from very different countries enrol in the GLOBED master's degree ensures that upon completion, each graduate will take back with them knowledge and experience which can be put to use in their country and solve some of the key challenges existing in the development of policies.
