Overview

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 has been ranked in the world's top 25 since 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. Graduates can expect to complete the program transformed and enhanced in their ability to make a difference in global sustainability.

Academic Presentation

This online PhD program blends several streams of academic knowledge and professional practice: sustainable economic development and international governance. Entrance into the program presupposed a good command of economics.

The curriculum provides a progression of courses covering ecological economics (with case studies), sustainable development studies, and international affairs related to SD. Upon completion of the required doctoral coursework, students proceed to the doctoral dissertation modules, leading to the presentation and defense of a doctoral thesis meeting international standards.

In the EUCLID context, sustainable economic development is considered from various angles as well as with an overall Global South perspective.

This is a program that is also used by civil servants working for EUCLID Participating States and can be considered an excellent route to pursue a career within institutions of higher learning, governmental bodies, NGOs, global corporations and international organizations.

Requirements

Applicants should have a relevant Master’s degree issued by an institution listed in the UNESCO-IAU handbook/database or otherwise duly recognized/accredited. Similar or related backgrounds with adequate professional experience may be considered for Government-sponsored applicants (who are already government staff) who may be admitted without the required educational credential 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. Students are expected to be in a position to dedicate 10 to 15 effective hours of study on a weekly basis.
