Urban development is driven by private and public stakeholders at local, regional, national, and international levels, and the program provides you with an understanding of the different stakeholders in developing and managing attractive and sustainable cities.

The program develops your knowledge and understanding of the different incentives and institutions driving the development of sustainable cities. After graduation, you will be able to work in a range of positions within both private and public sectors. Graduates are also eligible for PhD studies.

Rapid urban development poses both possibilities and challenges worldwide. Urban development is driven by a variety of stakeholders and interests, such as the real estate and transport sectors, as well as public and non-governmental organizations. The program addresses the role and interaction of different stakeholders as well as institutional perspectives on the development of sustainable and livable cities. The education is interdisciplinary with a basis in economics, business administration, real estate management, and economic geography. You will also get broad training in both quantitative and qualitative methods suitable for analyzing urban development.

The program is part of the research environment at the Department of Urban Studies working with urban business and development. All the teachers in the program are active researchers. Education and research conducted within the program have a focus on applied sciences and are highly relevant for actors outside academia, involving the public and private sectors.
