FEATURED EVENT

Make your mark: Choosing the right global development graduate program
May 31, 12 PM EST
Online

In a recent Devex survey, 79 percent of professionals believe that global development workers of the future will need a postgraduate degree to succeed. A requirement for most jobs in the sector, it is no longer a question of whether or not to pursue an advanced degree, but rather which degree and specialization will get you where you want to go.

So, you know you need a graduate degree to progress in your global development career. But, do you know which one? Devex conducted a study of over 1,500 graduate degree holders and the recruiters that hire them to dig into 10 of the most popular degrees for global development professionals.

In this Devex Career Webinar, Kate Warren, senior director and editor for careers and recruiting at Devex, will share insights from this study to help you understand your higher education options, and choose the path that will fulfill your educational and professional goals.
