Objectives: at the end of this 12-month MSc training programme, graduates are prepared and ready to work for both for-profit and nonprofit organisations.

It is currently difficult for many humanitarian and development organisations to recruit and retain skilled programme managers. These difficulties directly impact the efficiency of their programmes. Over recent years there has been increased attention given by humanitarian and development agencies to the quality of humanitarian and development practice and raised awareness of the importance of ensuring programme quality in the sector. The Bioforce Institute has been actively involved in these developments through extensive consultations on the challenges faced by NGOs. Developing their ability to hire, develop and retain competent managers has been recognised as a top priority. Both humanitarian and development organisations as well as individuals expressed the need for training programmes that enable potential and current managers to develop their technical, analytical and personal skills.

The partnership between the Bioforce Institute and Grenoble Ecole de Management has enabled the creation of a substantial management training programme for the humanitarian and development sector, offering trainees an academic qualification and the specific expertise they seek.

At a glance:

- 3 months at the Bioforce Institute : participants focus on the humanitarian programme manager’s core competencies (Managing People & Organisations, Managing Programmes & Projects, Managing Finance & Funding).

- 4 months at Grenoble Ecole de Management, for extra inputs from for-profit organisations, with a strong opening on strategy, marketing and geopolitics.

- 5 months field assignment.
