The Turin School of Development has developed a solid reputation for being truly international in the management, design, and delivery of these programs. Each program is co-managed by an international organization in its field of competence and the learning modules are delivered by a faculty of prominent professors, senior experts, and practitioners from around the globe.

The goal of our Masters and Postgraduate Programmes
Our objective is to provide multi-disciplinary postgraduate learning opportunities with targeted content and effective delivery modalities which are conducive to imparting the essential competencies needed for dealing with today’s social, economic, and environmental priorities at national and global levels.
The learning offers of the Turin School of Development are not intended to be in direct competition with similar programs offered by universities. They are selected and designed with a perspective of “differentiation” through a combination of features like:

  • full involvement of specialized UN agencies and distinguished professional bodies in program design, delivery, and supervision.
  • the intensive delivery that meets the learning requirements of a European Master; this is possible through an optimal combination of distance learning with face-to-face interaction, applied project development, and research work.
  • comprehensive coverage of the full range of technical competencies and professional skills for specific jobs in today’s knowledge economy.
  • the possibility of an internship with one of our institutional UN or professional partners.
