Those with the passion and desire to have a greater impact in their communities need the critical knowledge and proven skills to bring about the changes demanded by today’s rapidly changing world. 

Suited for community development practitioners and those transitioning into the field, students can choose to complete the program in 14 to 24 months. Students directly apply what they learn in the classroom by carrying out a yearlong project within their communities, developing a valuable toolkit that meets the gold standard in project management.

Ideal for working professionals, this hybrid master's program combines short, in-person summer terms with interactive online terms fall through spring. Students graduate with the knowledge, skills, and experience required to qualify for management positions within non-profit, non-governmental, and community-based organizations in addition to government agencies and private corporations.

“This program has been a life-changing experience for me. Not only did I come back to the Philippines with a vast knowledge from different parts of the world, I also came back with a newfound passion and drive for the work I do. By far, this is the best experience I have had in any educational institution, both socially and academically.”
