Online PhD in Sustainable Development

 

Because it is offered, and uniquely so, by an intergovernmental organization with a specialized mandate in sustainable development, the EUCLID online PhD in Sustainable Development and Diplomacy takes up the challenge of offering a comprehensive doctoral program at the junction of three specialized fields of knowledge and application: (1) economics development (2) sustainability, and (3) diplomacy and global governance.

EUCLID’s online PhD in Sustainable Development and Diplomacy is also based on EUCLID’s MBA/SD which was ranked #1 in 2016 for a good reason: it is offered by an international intergovernmental organization with a university mandate and specialized expertise in sustainable development. Historically, EUCLID grew out of the cooperation between universities and the International Organization for Sustainable Development (IOSD) which was the original SD international organization and which is now a EUCLID affiliated institute.

It is therefore only PhD program in sustainable development and diplomacy organized by an intergovernmental organization and officially used by senior civil servants over 4 continents. It is also highly relevant to managers and executives working for multinational companies.

EUCLID’s DSDD offers a comprehensive graduate study of the most relevant topics, including economic development, UN SD goals, international law, ecological economics, etc. Graduate can expect to complete the program transformed and enhanced in their ability to make a difference in global sustainability.

Academic Presentation

This unique PhD focuses on diplomatic practice and the actual application of theoretical knowledge, rather than the advancement of academic knowledge for its own sake.

EUCLID's programs are used by professional diplomats working for EUCLID Participating States and can be considered an excellent route to pursue a career within governmental bodies, NGOs and international organizations.

Thanks to its low tuition and institutional relationships, it is of special interest to European and African students.

Within certain parameters, the EUCLID Online PhD in Sustainable Development and Diplomacy is customizable, with elective courses focusing on:

  • Regional diplomatic affairs
  • Small islands issues
  • Inter-ethnic and inter-religious relations
  • E-government
  • Sustainable economic development
  • Non-governmental organizations
  • International Law and Treaty Law

This degree program is distance-based only and requires fluency in the English language.

Admission Requirements

Applicants must have a Master’s degree or its international equivalent, issued by an institution listed in the latest edition of the UNESCO-IAU handbook.

Government-sponsored applicants (who are already government staff) may be admitted without a Bachelor’s degree if their level of education and experience is deemed sufficient. EUCLID may require these participants to complete bridge courses prior to enrolling in the program.

Fluency in English (spoken and written) is required and will be tested.
