Post Graduate Programme in Development Leadership

The Post Graduate Programme in Development Leadership (PGP-DL) is ISDM’s flagship initiative. It has been designed by leading academics and practitioners from both the development and management sectors. The PGD-DL is designed “to develop a cadre of management professionals that can manage and lead social purpose organisations for sustainable social impact at scale.”

The PGP DL is a one-of-its-kind programme that blends ideas of development with management theories, combining in-class sessions with collaborative group work, and a field component that grounds the programme in the real needs of the sector.

Signature components of the Programme

  • Customised Courses for Social Sector Organisations: These are courses that are unique to the needs of the Social Sector, for example Networks and Partnerships, and Fund Raising and Resource Mobilisation.
  • Customised workshops: These are workshops that build perspectives, knowledge and skills required by a development professional. For example, Radical Transformational Leadership is a series of workshops that helps build capacity to unleash the full potential of individuals.
