Introduction

OVERVIEW:

Offered as a Joint Initiative with IOSD (International Organization for Sustainable Development), the pioneering EUCLID MBA/SD remains the reference in terms of the acquisition of core MBA competencies and globalized grasp of applied sustainability. In 2016, EUCLID was officially notified that its MBA in Sustainable Development program has been ranked #1 by the independent http://www.bestcollegereviews.org/ website. The article entitled “The 23 Best Online MBA Programs In Sustainability” assessed various programs on the basis of affordability, flexibility, and academic reputation. Other ranked programs included University of Colorado—Denver, UMass Dartmouth, Marylhurst University, Walden University and Presidio Graduate School.

PROGRAM OBJECTIVES:

This Master's degree program focuses on the application of theoretical knowledge to support and engage in sustainable economic development, rather than the advancement of academic knowledge for its own sake. The curriculum was primarily designed to train government staff already working in the field, but it is also suitable to prepare other professionals and outstanding students for careers with national governmental bodies, NGOs, multinational corporations and international organizations such as the European Union, the African Union, ECOWAS, etc. On account of its low tuition and institutional relationships, it is of special interest to European, African, “Small Islands” and OIC countries students. The EUCLID MBA/SD is a unique program in the sense that it is the only Master’s Degree program in Sustainable Development actually offered by an intergovernmental organization with a specialized institute dedicated to this field (the International Organization for Sustainable Development). This relationship facilitates direct interaction with practitioners as well as opening rare internship opportunities at diplomatic missions and events.

OPTIONAL SPECIALIZATIONS:

In consultation with his or her assigned tutor, the student may pursue directed studies, for a value of 2 6 UCH / 3 9 ECTS, in the following areas of research and concentration:

  • Policies of Economic Development
  • Islamic Economics and Finance
  • International Relations and Diplomacy
  • Energy Studies

LANGUAGE REQUIREMENTS:

All students must be fluent in English and should be conversant in French, Spanish, Arabic, Chinese or another major world language in addition to English.

ENROLLMENT SCHEDULE:

EUCLID has ongoing enrollment (intake) for this program. It is acceptable to apply several months in advance but it is recommended to apply 60-40 days in advance. General public slots are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
