International development professionals work with governments and civil society organizations in low-income countries and regions to foster economic growth, improve health and well-being, and create a more equitable world. Work in this sector can focus on policy-making, addressing causes and effects of poverty, and empowering individuals and communities to improve their well-being.
Jobs in international development can touch on a wide variety of topics such as environment, economics and livelihoods, governance reforms, private sector development, gender, healthcare, human rights, and education.
In partnership with the Tobias Center, HLS offers students many different opportunities to prepare for a career in international development.
