Starting date: each year, in March and October.

Introduction Why offer a Master’s degree in humanitarian action?

The main objective of offering a Master’s degree in humanitarian action is to address the growing need for university qualifications that have been specifically designed to tackle complex humanitarian emergencies.

As a result, there is a higher demand for qualified staff who can take on the new humanitarian action challenges, demonstrating proven supervision skills and the capacity to lead. These people must be equipped to set priorities and plan operations to successfully address humanitarian crises.... [-]
