Following its successful launch in 2014, LSE Cities will be running an intensive week-long Executive programme on London and Global Cities in summer 2015. Aimed at mid and late career professionals in both the public and private sectors, the course looks at how London and other major global cities have successfully implemented spatial policies and programmes to improve the economy and quality of life in their cities. Taught by LSE Cities and LSE London’s long standing faculty together with some of the London’s key decision makers, the programme uses participant led case study exercises, site visits and seminars to put students in the middle of real urban challenges testing their leadership and management skills.
