Global Master's in Development Practice

Partner(s): Jeffrey Sachs - Earth Institute

The Global Master's in Development Practice (MDP) is a two-year degree providing graduate-level students with the skills and knowledge required to better identify and address the global challenges of sustainable development, such as poverty, population, health, conservation, climate change, and agricultural productivity. The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation has committed $15 million to create MDP programs at up to 15 universities worldwide over the next three years.

CCNMTL supports the MDP with a suite of technological tools to help achieve the program's goals. These include a range of customized tools that enable synchronous and asynchronous collaboration among the participants in shared courses taught simultaneously at many universities around the world, and a customized social network to encourage and foster a global community of sustainable development practitioners.
