The joint International Master in Rural Development (IMRD), part of the European Erasmus Mundus programme, offers the opportunity to study the European vision on rural development in its diversity of approaches and applications, on a scholarship provided by the European Union.

The objective is to train specialists in integrated rural development, focussed on socio-economic and institutional aspects, not only from the European Union but also from developed, developing and transition countries outside the European Union through a 2 year master programme (120 ECTS) jointly organised by six European leading institutes in agricultural economics and rural development.

The Master program is offered by

  • Ghent University (Belgium)
  • Agrocampus Ouest (France)
  • Humboldt University of Berlin (Germany)
  • Slovak University of Agriculture in Nitra (Slovakia)
  • University of Pisa (Italy)
  • Wageningen University (The Netherlands)
in collaboration with
  • University of Pretoria (South Africa),
  • ESPOL (Ecuador)
  • University of Agricultural Sciences of Bangalore (India),
  • China Agricultural University
  • Nanjing Agricultural University (China)


The methodology consists of a combination of basic and specialised training in technical, economic and social sciences, a case study of one month, an individual master thesis and a high extent of student and scholar mobility.
