DCID offers a full range of educational programs for international development policy professionals: the Master of International Development Policy (MIDP) graduate degree, Executive Education programs, and the International Development Policy Certificate for graduate and professional students in other programs at Duke and neighboring universities.
This graduate program is aimed at mid-career professionals who have significant work experience in the world of international development- for example in local, national, or international government, NGOs, social enterprises, or the private sector. Our flexible curriculum is designed specifically to allow our fellows to design a custom course of study, backed by rigorous core courses, academic advising from our expert faculty, and support from our warm and welcoming staff.
Each summer, DCID offers a set of open-enrollment courses with an emphasis on skills for development professionals. Courses are designed to meet the needs of senior professionals working in government, business, and nonprofits. Our Executive Education team also designs custom courses on a range of development and governance topics. Recent topics include development economics, governance and development, leadership, and civic engagement.
The Master of International Development Policy program offers a concurrent International Development Policy (IDP) Certificate to students enrolled in other full-time graduate programs. This certificate is earned concurrently to your degree program.
