The second intensive teaching period of LSE Cities’ Executive MSc in Cities begins this week at the London School of Economics and Political Science. The EMC is a flexible, tailor-made programme for urban professionals in the public, private and third sectors who want to improve the way their organisations understand and deliver change in cities. While week one, in September, focused on identifying and understanding the world’s major urban challenges, week two will introduce students to analytic frameworks for understanding the latest economic, environmental and social trends in cities, including key performance indicators and multicriteria assessments. It will also include a public dialogue and information session with Ricky Burdett and Roger Madelin on Tuesday, December 13. Enrollment for the 2017 EMC is now open: for further information, see here.
