DAAD in Germany is inviting applications for Master of Science (MSc) in Development Economics for the 2021/2022 academic session.
The English-language Master of Science in Development Economics is jointly offered by the Department of Economics (Faculty of Business and Economics) and the Department of Agricultural Economics and Rural Development (Faculty of Agricultural Sciences). It builds on the successful Master of Science in International Economics and Master of Arts in Agribusiness; these programmes already had a strong specialization in development issues. This research-oriented master programme now offers a comprehensive four-semester programme dedicated solely to the study of development economics issues.
This attractive master’s programme offers a wide array of development relevant courses, a specialization in quantitative or agricultural economics, one semester stay abroad at one of our many partner universities around the globe or opportunities for fieldwork in a developing country. All these features together with the concluding master’s thesis will enable students to analyze current issues in development economics and prepare them for successful careers as development specialists in government agencies, supra-national or non-governmental organizations, research, and the private sector.
The selection procedure takes place in two steps with a pre-selection of applicants based on their written application documents followed by a personal selection interview with some of the applicants.
The following points are evaluated in the pre-selection procedure:
Suitable candidates may be invited to a selection interview, if not already admitted based on their application material alone. This interview will be held online (skype) in case of international applicants. German residents will be scheduled during the so-called “application day” and have to appear in person. The admission committee will inform the applicants of the selection process results in writing.
Deadline: Application closes on November 15, 2020.
