A new Master of Development Practice (MDP) degree is to be launched by the University of Peradeniya in September. This is an internationally recognized two-year, graduate level professional degree programme, designed to equip development professionals to confront complex development challenges.

The University of Peradeniya was one of 14 universities selected worldwide to receive seed funding from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation to develop a new innovative postgraduate programme in development practice. It is the only University in Sri Lanka and one of five universities in all of Asia to receive such funding and be accepted as one of 23 member universities in the global MDP network.
