Get a taste of the Open University’s Development Management degree

Development can mean different things to different people. For development managers around the world, it’s about the process of bringing about change and achieving social justice. But how can development be managed and what tools do development managers need?

On this course, you will discuss the answers to these questions and boost your understanding of development management as a whole. As you learn to unpack what development management is, you will recognise the complexities and political nature of development. You will also apply a development management tool to a real-world context.

This course is for anyone interested in or already working in the development sector. It will act as a guide for those thinking of moving into development work.
