DIPLOMA IN NGOs AND DEVELOPMENT MANAGEMENT
 
Why DipNDM?
Managers working in development contexts or the potential managers seeking to work in development contexts need the ability to appreciate the diversity and complexity of these contexts and the capacity to bring about good change. They also need the capacity to understand their own role and the roles of others in bringing about change that works. The modules making up this DipNDM provide an historical and interdisciplinary framework for analysing the contexts in which development interventions take place and a set of skills for planning, implementing and evaluating those interventions.
