About

Urban Management - Good Governance in Complex Contemporary Cities at the Erasmus University Rotterdam is designed for individuals who are contributing or would like to contribute to the holistic and equitable sustainable development of cities.

Overview

Key facts:

  • The Urban Management - Good Governance in Complex Contemporary Cities course at the Erasmus University Rotterdam provides a set of carefully selected urban management and development theories that you will see reflected through practice in major cities during academic excursions in the Netherlands. You will witness how gentrification, urban heritage, green cities and other important theories can be applied to help manage cities. Urban Management is also useful for practitioners who wish to exchange experiences with international students and experts; and who wish to refine their expertise.
  • Urban Management is interactive and you will learn through practice. During the course you learn how to critically evaluate theories and assess their relevance to the conditions of your city. Through theoretical underpinning by the end of the course you will learn how to analyse urban policies, adopt a multi-stakeholder approach, analyse governance and planning structures and integrate multiple theories with an understanding of their physical impact on city formation.

Programme Structure

  • Urban Management participants attend the first three months of the UMD programme which gives you the opportunity to experience a sample of IHS’ respected master’s programme.
  • Innovative teaching methods are used to provide efficient and enjoyable learning. In addition to classroom lectures learning activities include individual and group assignments, workshops, presentations, discussions and educational games and most importantly theory based excursions.

Audience

If you are an urban professional with at least 2 years working or research experience looking for an opportunity to boost your academic learning while applying it to practice then this course is right for you.
