The programme offers students a unique combination of theoretical knowledge and applied research methods and management skills pertaining to a range of development areas and challenges. These different aspects of international development research and practice are being integrated through programme courses, student internships with international organisations, field work research, and development practitioner seminars. Our students spend the first academic year of the programme on campus while pursuing their internships and field work in developing contexts during the second year.
LUMID is a proud member of the Global Association for Master’s in Development Practice (MDP), a premiere network of development master programmes that among other things offers our students access to international lectures and seminars on global development issues. Our alumni have successfully gained employment in an extensive number of development organisations worldwide, ranging from multilateral organisations (e.g. various UN agencies, the World Bank) and international aid and cooperation agencies (e.g. Sida) to non-governmental organisations (NGOs).
LUMID constitutes one of the most popular master programmes in Sweden, receiving approximately 1500 applications each year from all corners of the world and we are only able to admit the 40 most qualified applicants.
