Global Technology and Development Applied International Development Concentration (GTD-AID)

The Applied International Development Concentration in the MS in Global Technology and Development program (GTD) offers the working professional in international development a flexible curriculum that meets their needs, and relates immediately to work in the field. With just one required core course and a final applied project, the remainder of the curriculum can be constructed by each student, with the assistance of an advisor. We want to ensure that the courses meet the needs of each masters student and their personal and professional goals.
