University of Kwa-Zulu Natal
Masters Degree, Development & Social Policy
I had been living in Durban, South Africa for 3 years using my marketing and operations background working with non-profits and companies trying to make a difference in the country. While I had a deeply practical understanding of developing world challenges, I desired a deeper theoretical understanding of development and social policy. The School of Development Studies was world renowned at the time, and in my back yard. So I spent two years studying under incredible professors and spent 3 months at the United Nations Research Institute of Social Development, contributing to social policy research.
