Master's in International Development & Public Policy

Careers @ Nova SBE

The MIDPP provides high-level skills that are demanded in organisations that deal with domestic and international public policy (involving both developed and developing countries). The list of potential job opportunities include international organisations (European Commission, OECD, United Nations sectoral agencies, etc), the civil service of EU and other countries, consultancies that work with the public sector, public relations agencies, and non-governmental organisations.


Nova SBE is currently working towards establishing partnerships with a number of organisations in sectors such as health, education, environment, and different government agencies in Portugal (e.g. Ministries of Foreign Affairs, Employment and Social Security) and abroad (e.g. EU development agency, International Labour Organisation). These partnerships may lead to traineeships and or job opportunities for MIDPP students and graduates.
