Master’s in Development Practice (MDP) in Indigenous Development
There are many paid research opportunities at the University of Winnipeg for which MDP students are eligible to apply. These opportunities are excellent ways in which students enhance their research skills, deepen their knowledge and learn directly from the mentorship provided by UWinnipeg faculty members.
As an inter-disciplinary program, the MDP has students with a wide variety of educational and professional backgrounds. This is advantageous because it widens the range of projects in which students may potentially be involved.
The following are examples of some of the research projects in which MDP students have been or currently are engaged. They demonstrate the varied nature of the important research undertaken at UWinnipeg.
- Food Co-operative Financing: Challenges and Opportunities within the Ontario and Manitoba Food Sector
