CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: Certificate of Advanced Studies in Management of Development Projects
In the current context of globalization, most countries face major social, economic, technological, political and institutional changes. In order to successfully implement a project, be it a development project, a public action or a private business, scientists, technicians and academics from the North and South will increasingly have to work together. The need to integrate different kinds of expertise will also be a necessity. In addition to the specialized skills in their respective fields, professionals will have to be able to understand specific historical and cultural backgrounds, to face new and changing situations and environments, different ways of thinking and implementing projects.
To help professionals to adapt to these situations and promote an interdisciplinary and multicultural approach to these problems, the École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) is organizing a Certificate of Advanced Studies in Management of Development Projects (MaDePro) targeted at project managers, engineers, architects, social scientists and other equivalent university graduates.
Deadline for Applications: 31 July 2011
