About the programme

The LUMID programme was initiated in the mid 2000s through a collaboration between Lund University and the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) with the aim to develop the next generation of development practitioners in a structure with high academic standards.

In recognition of the complexity of development issues at hand, the programme not only welcomes lecturers and students from various disciplines (including engineering, natural sciences, medicine and humanities in addition to traditional social science subjects) but also prides itself for prioritizing its international diversity of partners and students. Firmly grounded in the combination of academic rigor and advanced research applications, this unique diversity provides the backbone of LUMID’s pursuit of excellence in international development and management. .

Over the past eight years the programme has continuously evolved in order to secure proper alignment with the latest research findings as well as the ever-changing demands of future employers. As a result,  several complimentary initiatives are offered through the programme syllabus providing LUMID with a comparative advantage over other programmes in our field.

National and international recognition

In 2012 the programme gained further international status through the formal recognition as an MDP (Master’s in Development Practice) programme, providing LUMID with membership in a selective network of esteemed higher education institutions across the world.

Some 70-80 per cent of our graduates secure relevant employment within the first six months upon graduation. LUMID has been recognized as one of the top Master programmes in the country in two independent evaluations, the first conducted by an external panel of experts in 2011 and the second by the Swedish National Authority for Higher Education in 2012. Among other accolades, the 2011 evaluation described LUMID as "an impressive programme of having well designed courses with a strong practical and interdisciplinary approach".
