Lincoln University's Master of International Rural Development (MRD) is a joint programme between the Faculty of Agribusiness and Commerce and the Faculty of Environment, Society and Design. This programme provides a robust grounding in international rural development concepts and theories, and equips graduates with the analytical and practical skills they need to engage critically in development activities and debates from an interdisciplinary perspective. Students then build on this common grounding by selecting a specialisation in one of four rural development streams: Agribusiness, Economics, Finance or Tourism. To enrol for the MIRD, students must have completed a Bachelor degree in a discipline related to one of these specialisations. Study commences in November each year with three core courses taught over the Summer Semester (November-January). Students then progress to Lincoln’s regular semesters allowing them to complete the degree in just 12 months and there is no thesis requirement.
