A Master's in International Development can prepare students to create and execute development projects. Each year, many students—seeing the effects of global inequality—choose to pursue Master's Programs in International Development.

From Europe to the USA; from Japan to Australia, a number of business schools around the world offer Master's degrees in International Development—which can also be referred to as an MA (or MSc) in International Development. These programs can be research-oriented, or practice-based, and may cover a number of aspects of international development, including migration, economic development, budget management, social change, and more. Some of these programs may include internships or project components, that allow students to get real-world experience in development studies. 

The best Masters in International Development may be associated with research centers that inform the courses' curriculum, integrating up-to-date thinking. 

In terms of post-degree career opportunities, some who complete Master's programs in International Development go on to work in NGOs, nonprofits, or government agencies that deal with development-related issues. Some grads also continue to pursue other degrees, such as PhDs.
