Development Management (project module, TU874)

Development managers are often called upon to undertake investigations that contribute to changes in practice and policy; the development management project, the final, compulsory element of the MSc, provides an opportunity to learn, develop and practise the skills required for such an undertaking; the project is individually chosen, the choice determined by the student's own passions and priorities; the process is guided by learning from previous modules of the Master's programme; and the product is a report that makes the case for change in the understanding of, and/or the practice and policy related to, a significant development management problem.
