By working with the Sustainable Developments Goals agenda, the school creates principled development leaders and managers who are capable of achieving sustainable success. ZSDM engages emerging economies to build a team of civil leaders and business managers equipped to be problem solvers, change agents, and effective collaborators.
Development Executive Programs
The Stephen Zuellig School of Development Management’s ( ZSDM) Development Executive Programs (DEPs) are short non-degree courses on specialized topics relevant to development professionals.
DEP courses will enhance the participant’s appreciation, knowledge and skillset in leadership, management and program and/or project administration that will enable them to manage their organization in multifaceted settings, through a systematic and a collaborative approach, equipping them to deal with the situations in an effective and efficient method.
The need for capable and dedicated leaders and managers in a volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous (VUCA) environment is essential to embracing sustainability and solving complex social issues.

Today’s development managers need to address a unique set of challenges. They are expected to keep their organizations sustainable while these generate social good for communities and the planet. To us, these expectations aren’t just challenges — these inform the very backbone of our management framework.
Development managers also face a more mundane challenge — time. Our Open Enrollment programs allow development managers to build their portfolio of skills while continuing to lead their respective organizations. These skills are built through the case method, as well as a wide range of other learning methodologies.
The learnings participants receive have immediate, real-world application. They also empower development managers to balance the social good alongside sustainability.
