The aim of the Master’s Program is to enable graduates to become future operators that develop and implement projects in all their underlying components: analysis of the existing social and environmental contexts and needs, financial planning, procurement planning, labour relations, monitoring and evaluation, technical and financial reporting.



  • Contribute to the development of strategies for the use and management of natural resources
  • Understand the context and relevance of climate and environmental conditions

  • Lead, manage, and monitor projects from start to conclusion
  • Know how to work with international regulations on cooperation
  • Operate independently and in teams
  • Work well with personnel and stakeholders from both developed and developing countrieS

The Master’s Program is open to a minimum of 15 students and a maximum of 25.

The course is open to students holding any undergraduate or graduate degree, including – for Italian students – three-year undergraduate degrees prior to Italian D.M 509/99.  The Master’s Program is especially suitable to students coming with a scientific background, however students from other disciplines have successfully completed the course in previous years and all are therefore encouraged to enroll.

Admission to the program is based on the applicant CV and a language interview. Certificates proving the knowledge of foreign languages (English, French, Portuguese or Spanish), and previous experience in the volunteer organisation sector, particularly development cooperation, will be an asset to the application.

The Master’s Program is in English.
If the enrolled students are all Italian, classes will be in both Italian and English, but with course material provided in English.
Attendance is mandatory: Mon-Fri full-time.
Students have to cover the cost of their internships abroad, however in recent years the Master’s Program has been able to arrange at least some subsidy to these costs.

Registration deadline: 6 October 2017
