Organization Process

MDP partner universities enhance the MDP network by linking it to the many and varied development organizations with which they have forged relationships. These organizations range from corporate and governmental to not-for-profit and non-governmental agencies. They include academic, health, ecology, poverty-alleviation, management, and a multitude of social institutions.   Organizations can either collaborate with individual partner MDP programs or they can collaborate directly with the Secretariat:
