International Master of Science in Rural Development (IMRD)

IMRD: because

In a bio-resource based economy, food and bio resource production are gaining importance and are becoming more internationally oriented. The International Master of Science in Rural Development (IMRD) responds to this need through comparative study and international exposure which are central in the programme. The 2-year master programme (120 ECTS) is jointly organized by 12 institutes from all over the world and results in a joint degree.

During the master programme you will be able to specialize in rural development linked to one of the three focus areas: Economy, society and environment contained within the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s). You will experience a high extent of international student mobility, making it possible to learn rural development practices in different countries from specialists worldwide.
