Course Overview

When people have opportunities for decent work, everyone benefits. However, an estimated 10% of people still live on less than $1.90 a day. To exit the cycle of poverty, people need equal opportunities for alternative livelihoods, fair wages, safe environments, and social protection. These are the building blocks of inclusive economic growth.

Creating inclusive economies as a career might seem like a pipe dream. How do you get started on your journey to become a social development analyst, an economic development consultant, social entrepreneur or head of social impact? You’ll need expert guidance and clear-cut connections to career opportunities.

You also need theoretical knowledge, practical experience and contextual understanding. Kickstart your career in community economic development and join the Social Economic Development program.
