Our goal

Our objective is to provide multi-disciplinary postgraduate learning opportunities with targeted content and effective delivery modalities, conducive to imparting the essential skills required to deal with today’s social, economic and environmental priorities at national and global levels.

The courses taught at the Turin School of Development are not intended to be in direct competition with similar programmes offered by universities. They are selected and designed to be different through a combination of features such as:

  • full involvement of specialized UN agencies and distinguished professional bodies in programme design, delivery and supervision;
  • intensive delivery that meets the learning requirements of a European Master’s degree. This is possible through the optimal combination of distance learning with face-to-face interaction, applied project development and research work in a manner that minimizes participants’ absence from work duties at home;
  • multi-disciplinary coverage of the full range of technical competencies and professional skills for specific jobs in today’s knowledge economy;
  • the combination of academic resource persons and development practitioners that enables smooth integration of theory with practice.

Upon completion of the Master’s programme, you will be awarded a first level European Master’s degree (“Master Universitario di Primo Livello”) by the University of Turin. This Master’s degree gives a total of 60 ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System).


TSD postgraduate and masters’ programmes benefit from a skilled base of over 230 leading professors, professionals and UN experts from over 80 different institutions. They represent an international faculty of leading thinkers and actors with a pragmatic understanding of the world of today and its evolving issues.

In addition, participants’ learning is closely supported by dedicated tutors.
