Master of Evaluation

The Master of Evaluation is a professional qualification course catering for the needs of those who wish to prepare for a leadership role in evaluation theory, method, and practice at local, national and international levels. Our students include policy and program planners, trainers, teachers, performance auditors, internal monitoring and evaluation staff, project staff, managers, medical staff, and independent consultants. They are drawn from the public sector, non-government agencies, and business in areas such as education, welfare, and health.
