    At the graduate level I don't. But if you want the industry standard you should look at the Oklahoma EDI course. OU/EDI - World's Economic Development Teacher - University of Oklahoma

    I attended two of the three sessions while serving as Director of the local Chamber of Commerce / Industrial Development board. The material is fantastic but the networking is unbelievable. I would consider it the gold standard of ED and one instance where the information gained would outweight a graduate degree.

    I would join IEDC as well http://www.iedconline.org/.

    Southern New Hampshire University offers a PhD and MS in Economic Development. Peru State College offers a concentration in their Organizational Management master's program. Yale University, Vanderbilt University, Illinois State University, and Boston University all offer programs related to economic development. You did not specify whether you are interested in DL programs or in traditional face-to-face programs. I'm sure you can sort through those details from each school of interest.
