    Language of instruction is English, but some parts will be conducted in German!

    How to prepare projects professionally, which methods and techniques are the components and how can they be implemented and applied; both in DC and in the private sector? These were central questions for me, which I wanted to deepen professionally and focus on in the future. I wanted to continue working in the field of development cooperation and started a job at GIZ, where I could use the content of GNE; especially parts of the project cycle management.

    Target Group

    We invite graduates from universities of applied sciences and universities, especially in the fields of social sciences, humanities, economics, engineering, natural science, geography, law or with comparable degrees to apply to our program. Furthermore people with work experience in the sector of humanitarian aid or development cooperation are welcome to apply. General experience in international work would come as an advantage. Beyond that the field of international project management requires a high mobility, flexibility and the ability to work under pressure.
    The program is also suitable for refugees and migrants with a university degree. Language skills: German B1, English B1 (aim to reach B2/C1) Please consider that the language of instruction will be English but some training modules will be conducted in German.

    Professions

    Driven by developments like globalization, opening of labor markets, increasing relevance of cooperate management and professional project management in international economic cooperation, the demand of qualified personnel with interdisciplinary competence increases constantly. This demand can be covered by well trained professionals with experience in international project management.
    The focus of the program is the preparation of the participants for complex work in companies (“Public-Private-Partnership“) and global institutions for development cooperation and also humanitarian aid.

    Goals of the Training

    In theoretical and practical training modules the participants will learn how to use concepts and methods of project planning and project management. These concepts concern especially international economy as well as projects in the scope of development and humanitarian aid (including emergency relief).

    Training Procedure

    The training is targeted towards the demands of the international development policy and business practice. The duration of the training is 7 months in total.
    Parts of the program will be conducted in collaboration with lecturers from the University of Kassel, Germany. Most of the training will be done in form of group work. Lecturers include professionals from internationally operating institutions and companies. These lecturers also provide a direct contact for the future working environment.
    The modules “Corporate Project Management“ and “Project Planning in Development/ Humanitarian Cooperation“ are the main focus of the program. A new main part of the program concerns projects in humanitarian aid and emergency relief.
    A successful access to the job market will be assisted by an internship in selected institutions and companies.
