EUCLID’s online master in monitoring and evaluation is the only Master’s level degree program offered by an institution that is itself an intergovernmental treaty-based institution (EUCLID). To master monitoring and evaluation means to be able to manage and oversee complex programs with external funding sources. M&E is defined as:

Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) is used to assess the performance of projects, institutions and programmes set up by governments, international organisations and NGOs. Its goal is to improve current and future management of outputs, outcomes and impact. Monitoring is a continuous assessment of programmes based on early detailed information on the progress or delay of the ongoing assessed activities.[1] An evaluation is an examination concerning the relevance, effectiveness, efficiency and impact of activities in the light of specified objectives.

Moreover, EUCLID is an academic partner of other intergovernmental organizations lacking degree-granting authority such as LLPI and CAFRAD. Remarkably, EUCLID’s associated MBA (Sustainable Development) has been consistently ranked in the world's top 20.

Historically, EUCLID grew out of the cooperation between universities and the International Organization for Sustainable Development (IOSD) which was the original SD international organization and which became a EUCLID-affiliated institute in 2008.

This master’s degree program is officially used by senior civil servants over 4 continents. It is also highly relevant to managers and executives working for multinational companies.

EUCLID’s online master in monitoring and evaluation offers a strong MBA style program capped with a master's thesis or high-level elective courses covering international relations and organizations, international law, etc. Graduates can expect to complete the program transformed and enhanced in their ability to make a difference in global governance.

Academic Presentation

OECD governments and international organizations play a vital role in today’s global and complex international development scene. These governments and organizations fund complex development programs that call for rigorous and professional monitoring and oversight. The employment opportunities in this field are vast, exciting and geographically diverse.

The EUCLID master in monitoring and evaluation program is the program you need to obtain the skills necessary to become a desirable and valuable asset for employment with these governments (often through their development agencies like SIDA) and international organizations (such as the World Bank or AfDB): you will receive advanced training in project management and auditing, project monitoring, relevant IT tools, etc.

Although spending 2 years in Geneva or Washington DC is exciting and possibly the best approach for those who can take the campus-based route, the EUCLID program has the advantage of being offered completely online, with a very low tuition designed to make international careers possible for residents to developing countries.


Within certain parameters, the EUCLID Online Master in Monitoring and Evalution (M&E) is customizable, with elective courses focusing on:

  • Global Business Leadership
  • Management and Marketing applicable to NGOs and IGOs
  • Project Management within IOs
  • IO role in Sustainable Economic Development

Applicants should have a relevant Bachelor’s degree issued by an institution listed in the UNESCO-IAU handbook/database (WHED) or otherwise duly recognized/accredited.

EUCLID may require these participants to complete bridge courses prior to enrolling in the program. Fluency in English (spoken and written) is required and will be tested. Students are expected to be in a position to dedicate 10 to 15 effective hours of study on a weekly basis.
