About the course

An exploration of the policy challenges and solutions facing developing countries aiming to achieve inclusive and sustainable growth.

Why are some countries rich and others poor? Why are some governed well and others badly? Why are some cohesive and others conflicted? Gain a deeper understanding of these issues on our new course, Managing Inclusive Development in Emerging Societies.

The course provides an interdisciplinary and critical approach to the theories and practices being used to address problems of governance, economic growth, equity and stability, and social inclusion in the Global South. You’ll also benefit from studying alongside practitioners from around the globe, enhancing your professional network. London is hub for international development and LSE is a world leader in this subject.

Upon completion the course your ability to design, monitor and evaluate policies, programmes and projects in societies at different levels of development will be significantly increased.

Course outcomes

The course will enable participants to:

  • Gain an understanding of the political economy of developing counties – both for the purpose of instituting change and for doing business in their economies.
  • Familiarise themselves with the challenges, solutions, and possible synergies with programmes in other sectors and countries.
  • Increase their ability to evaluate their existing programmes and develop a ‘menu of options’ rather than rigid templates, which will enable them to adapt their interventions to suit prevailing conditions in different contexts.
  • Enhance their network with a diverse range of professionals from around the world.
