“Differentiation” is the invariable hallmark of the full range of Masters offered by the Turin School of Development. Such differentiation starts with Master design and extends to the packaging of learning content and is finally carried out through Master delivery as illustrated below. Learning is experiential and results-based; methods are participatory, application-oriented, and make extensive use of information and communication technology.
All Masters are designed for blended delivery through a succession of Internet-based distance learning followed by face-to-face sessions and applied research work.
In case of an emergency situation or of force majeure, ITCILO, upon agreement with the other partner institutions, might decide to reconvert the residential phase of the Master into online lessons and exams.
The ability to use computers and the internet is an essential requirement for the distance learning component of the course.
In order to be able to visualise the contents of the website and the distance learning platform properly, you need:
Note: If your system fails to meet any of the above criteria, we cannot guarantee that the content will be displayed correctly.
Comprising more than 280 private dormitories, the Turin Campus provides a broad range of services for course participants and partners. For further information, please contact the Master’s secretariat.
During the face-to-face learning phase, lectures will be held in classrooms equipped with all necessary training facilities and Wi-Fi.
Your room (on campus) also has an Internet connection via cable and Wi-Fi.
There is a computer room with Internet connections, open 24 hours a day in the campus reception area.
In compliance with the security arrangements of the Centre, only previously authorized visitors/guests can access the campus. A student who wishes to receive visitors/guests must request an authorization to the Security Unit through the course secretary at least one week in advance and upon the submission of a valid passport of the visitor/guest.
