Glocal is a personal journey toward defining what to do in the field of development according to one's profile, experience, wishes, and strengths.
Glocal’s mission is to advance critical global thinking, while challenging existing theories in the field of international development, by focusing on sustainable community development that is based on a diverse body of knowledge and experience.
Each cohort consists of some 25-30 students from around the world, and from diverse interdisciplinary backgrounds. With this diversity, students enrich and deepen the learning process of their peers and build meaningful relationships. Graduating from Glocal opens up various possibilities for employment, such as working with local, national, or international development agencies around the world, supporting marginalized communities by working in local or national authorities. One can also work, for example, in the private and for-profit sectors where international experience is valued. Pursuing further research in International Development or related fields is another option that graduates may wish to take. Visit our alumni page for more details.
