Master Program in Integrated Water Resources Management
The Masters’ Programme in Integrated Water Resources Management (MA IWRM) at the German-Kazakh University (GKU) was established in 2011 as the capacity building component of the “Water Initiative for Central Asia” of the German Federal Foreign Ministry. Since then 35 students were accepted to the Programme representing all five Central Asian states and a wide variety of water-related professions, such as climatology, hydrology, environmental science, international relations and many more. They were selected based on criteria of excellence, work experience, geographical representation and knowledge of English. The IWRM MA is exceptional in its highly interdisciplinary approach: it equips its participants with technical knowledge and providing them with ‘scientific literacy’ in the social- and nature-scientific aspects of water management, at the same time having a regional focus and supported by regional and international expertise.
The MA IWRM is a 2 years full-time Masters Programme. Upon graduation the students receive the Degree of Master of Economics in Management.
