    In this special Worldwide in New York event, UNU rector Konrad Osterwalder outlined his vision for the future of the United Nations University as a fully fledged graduate school. Following a recent General Assembly resolution co-sponsored by 112 countries, UNU plans to begin awarding Masters and PhD degrees at its current institutes and in partnership with local institutions within five years. The move will allow the organization to better fulfil its mandate as an interdisciplinary training provider and capacity builder in developing countries.
