The goal of the Rural Development programme from Humboldt University Berlin to train professionals that contribute to solving socio-economic, natural resource and agricultural challenges in Rural communities. The multi-disciplinary approach, the comparative study of EU and non-EU models, a flexible study programme and the unique mobility requirements stimulate students to gain a wide perspective of Rural Development and build an international network.
Following one of the IMRD+ tracks leads to the awarding of a double degree. The joint degree: International Master of Science in Rural Development. And a second degree in Agricultural Economics (University of Arkansas or Seoul National University), Economics (Korea University) or Rural Development (ESPOL).

- Integrated rural development is about raising economic performance for all rural economy sectors in order to promote the shaping of rural communities. Implementing such thinking about rural development requires specialists with specific and integrated skills for designing, deciding and managing rural policies, programmes and projects.
- Our objective is to train students in assessing several ways of thinking on rural development worldwide. Each mobility track is therefore designed to generate an added value for our students.
