Master’s in International Development Programs
List of Top Programs in International Development
Looking to get an International Development Masters degree? I’ve created this resource for prospective MAs in international development and globalization, because “GradSchools.com” is only providing a small picture of people who pay for advertising. I thought I would provide an independent and more objective offering of the best graduate programs for global development:
Brandeis Univ. Sustainable International Development Program
Columbia’s International Development and Globalization Program
Duke Center for International Development
Fordham International Development Program
Harvard Kennedy School of Government
John Hopkins University
McGill International Development Studies
Michigan State University International Studies
Tufts Gradutate School in International Affairs
UCLA International Institute
Other schools to look which receive high honors Tulane, Denver, GWU, and Maxwell at Syracuse University.
The US News and World Report rankings for development economics suggests the following:
1) Harvard University (Cambridge, MA)
2) MIT (Cambridge, MA)
2) Yale University (tie) (New Haven, CT)
4) University of California at Berkeley (Berkeley, CA)
5) Princeton University (Princeton, NY)
6) University of Chicago (Chicago, Il)
7) Columbia University (New York, NY)
8] Brown University (Providence, RI)
9) Cornell UNiversity (Ithaca, NY)
10) New York University (New York, NY)
Can you suggest any rankings which will better clarify the best programs in international development for PhDs and masters students?
Finally here are the top PhD programs in international relations from the Foreign Affairs Ranking and Reputation study.
1) This is international relations and not international development.
2) These are probably only marginally helpful, because they are likely based more on research and academic reputation than on career potential, but they should still prove instructive for those trying to either widen or narrow their graduate international development program search.
