The Master course aims at training executives/economic and development professionals able to connect local occupational and productive situations to national and transnational ones, as well as to frame these situations within communitarian or international programs which are more and more numerous and specifically aimed at place-based growth and development globally.
The challenge of sustainable development localisation calls for coordination and coherence of local development policies and the firm commitment of all relevant territorial agents. Therefore, the process of designing and implementing local development strategies to achieve the sustainable development target is critical.
The Course aims also at providing a thorough understanding of how the process of globalisation affects private (particularly small and medium enterprises) and public institutions working in a local context in the Mediterranean region. The main objective is to provide students with the necessary tools to critically analyse the “globalisation challenge” as seen from the local and regional dimensions, and strengthen the capacity of local partners to access, participate and cooperate in the global market.

Stage and Didactic Programme:
In the start-up phase of the Course, educational offers aimed at the needs of each student and group work will be studied and prepared. Thus, it will be possible to start a tailored programme on an individual level, but more often working groups will be created which will carry out collective activities coordinated by teachers and tutors.
The individual work, the stage, mainly as an internship (applied research or field experience) and the thesis/dissertation/project work will also be scheduled in line with the prearranged schedule.
This course is designed for professionals from a variety of different disciplinary backgrounds including first-degree holders in Economics, Business, Banking, Accountancy, Management, Development Studies, Marketing, Law, Political Science, International Relations, Sociology, and similar disciplines. Similar equivalent qualifications and lifelong learners with relevant experience are welcome to apply. A detailed CV/Resume is also required.
The Master offers international training oriented towards policy, management and planning within public institutions, departments of firms and enterprises that offer service management and professional category associations involved in international partnership initiatives within the framework of the global action for the promotion of sustainable development.
Within public institutions, departments of firms and enterprises that offer service management and professional category associations are involved in international partnership initiatives within the framework of global action for the promotion of sustainable development. According to the United Nations Industrial Development Organization, green skills are the abilities and knowledge needed to develop and support a sustainable and resource-efficient society. The GREEN GENERAL SKILL INDEX identifies four main types of skills that are sought after in green occupations:
• Engineering and technical skills: For candidates interested in technology, these skills are needed to develop new products and solutions, with a focus on renewable energy. For example, you may know that many companies use Cloud technology to store and consume data. There is a growing demand for people who have the technical expertise to evaluate the design, architecture, and implementation of that data to reduce energy consumption and improve efficiency.
• Science-based skills: For those interested in fields like physics and biology, this expertise is vital in the utility sector, a part of which focuses on helping infrastructures transition to sustainable sources of energy.
• Operational management skills: In any field, this skill can be used to help organizations support green initiatives or activities. For example, sustainability specialists need to have an overall understanding of how a firm operates (from creating services and products to delivering them) and need to have the communication skills to collaborate with external stakeholders (both partners and customers).
• Monitoring skills: As more and more businesses are required to report ENVIRONMENTAL/SOCIAL/GOVERNANCE ESG scores, new jobs will continue to arise in environmental compliance, including inspectors responsible for tracking, assessing, and understanding the technical criteria and legal standards companies must comply with.
