RUB to introduce programme in collaboration with Columbia

Friday, August 12, 2011

The Royal University of Bhutan (RUB), will collaborate with Earth Institute at the Columbia University in the US to introduce a Master’s Programme in Development Practices in the country. The programme will provide Bhutanese graduates the opportunity to pursue a two year degree course in sustainable development like poverty, health, resource optimisation, climate change and rural development.

They will also have the opportunity to exchange ideas on sustainable development with students from member countries of the consortium.

RUB is the 24th member under the Earth Institute’s consortium of 23 universities.

A working group will be organised with representatives from RUB and the Earth Institute to review the curriculum and complete the process.
