MADM Cape Town

Master in Development Management in Cape Town, South Africa

uwcThe Institute of Development Research and Development Policy (IEE) of Ruhr University Bochum, in cooperation with the Institute for Social Development (ISD) and the School of Government (SoG) of the University of the Western Cape, offers the Bochum Programme of Development Management. This twin course is identical to the Masters Programme in Development Management at the Institute of Development Research and Development Policy of Ruhr University Bochum, Germany with respect to curriculum, lecturers and the degree awarded.

The MA in Development Management of Ruhr University Bochum, Germany, will be awarded to successful students.

The programme includes a four weeks' summer school and an internship period in Germany.

After completion of course work of the first semester and participation in German language classes students have the opportunity to take part in a Summer School on Research Methods and Development Practice at Ruhr University Bochum, Germany together with the students of the twin programme in Bochum. Apart from coursework the Summer School includes a seminar on Inter-cultural Communication and Team Building, workshops dealing with Development Cooperation in practice as well as some excursions for you to get more familiar with Bochum, the region and Germany.

The Summer School is followed by an internship period of about two to three months with a German development organisation or a suitable corporation in the private sector, which is active in developing and/or emerging countries. The internships are tailor-made to the needs of both the relevant partner organisation and the related experience and preferences of the student.

Please note that we are currently not accepting any applications for the MADM at the University of the Western Cape as no intake will start in South Africa in 2024. If you are interested in studying the MADM programme, please apply for the MADM in Bochum. See the "How to apply" section for further information.
