Executive Master Schedule

Global Framework

Carefully selected urban governance experiences from around the world constitute as opportunities for city managers to become exposed to different and innovative ways of approaching urban systems’ governance. Each of the seven cities in which IGLUS takes place addresses urban systems’ governance from a particular angle. Taken together, this global learning journey makes up for a complete and comprehensive approach to urban governance.

9 Cities, 7 Urban Challenges

Cities and urban agglomerations are complex socio-technical systems of infrastructures (transport, water, waste, energy, housing and greens). Infrastructures play a central role in the global competitiveness of cities. They are key to achieving the performance, attractiveness and quality of life of urban systems in terms of their Efficiency, Sustainability and Resilience. The IGLUS Executive Master offers a unique opportunity to learn about innovative approaches to governing and managing complex urban infrastructures, both theoretically and practically. The Master program is structured around seven cities, each of which stands for a particular challenge and focuses on one particular performance dimension.
