About the course

The MSc/Postgraduate Diploma in Development Administration and Planning (DAP) gives students an understanding of the processes generating social change as well as the skills and abilities to respond to such change.

It provides a range of tools for forming appropriate responses to a diverse range of problems, including productive capacity, inter-sectoral integration, economic and social diversification and self-sufficiency.

The course examines strategies for better export performance and efficiency in production, combined with policies relating to questions of distribution and, in particular, the reduction of poverty and inequality.
