The new Executive MSc in Cities has commenced in London, with twenty-three students beginning the first week of intense training sessions spread over 12 months. The programme, which is led by Professor Ricky Burdett, Executive Director Philipp Rode, Professor Tony Travers and Dr Savvas Verdis, aims to provide a unique experience of urban governance, design, transport, finance and economic development in global cities with input from LSE faculty and a network of visiting global fellows.
Executive MSc students include planners, architects, entrepreneurs and policymakers, some of whom have received support from the Urban Age Scholarship, made possible through the Urban Age Programme, a joint initiative between LSE Cities and the Alfred Herrhausen Gesellschaft. Others have been assisted by the Bloomberg Scholarship for Public Service.
Session One of the Executive MSc in Cities runs from September 12-16, before Session Two begins on December 12. For more information, visit the programme’s dedicated website.
