Chemonics and Arizona State University (ASU) established a partnership in 2018 based on our shared belief that the collaboration between development practitioners and researchers produces evidence-based, dynamic solutions. We combine ASU’s depth across a wide variety of academic disciplines with Chemonics’ practical international development experience in 150 countries worldwide, creating a free exchange of ideas and a worldwide laboratory for testing and scaling innovations to solve the world’s toughest problems. Our joint initiatives include:
- Solutions labs. Chemonics and ASU experts form problem-solving teams that identify profound challenges and implement game-changing solutions. Learn more about our solutions labs here.
- The Student Development Corps. Chemonics accesses undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral-level ASU students who conduct research and develop solutions and products that amplify development impact. Students gain exposure to real-world problems in development contexts, build leadership skills, and begin lifelong professional networks while contributing to Chemonics’ work.
- Continual learning opportunities. Chemonics and ASU have teamed up to provide our global workforce with continued education at a prestigious university in a flexible, low-cost format. Together, we created a MiniMasters in Global Supply Chain Management, an online accredited graduate certificate that links to master’s programs at ASU.
