12 – 16 June 2017, LSE, London
Much of LSE Cities research on global cities is developed in dialogue with senior urban leaders from across the world. This five-day course for mid to senior level executives explores the governance, planning and design of London, drawing parallels with and implications for other major cities. Led by senior faculty members of both LSE Cities and LSE London, the course applies world-class LSE research to provide participants with an understanding of the key challenges facing both mature and rapidly-developing metropolitan areas, today and into the future.

“City management and urban challenges may appear local, but modern urban leadership requires the sort of global view offered by the London and Global Cities Executive Summer School course. As a city official passionate about urban affairs, I can truly say that the course is a must for anyone wanting to develop into a more effective urban leader.” – Guillaume Lavoie, City Councillor, Montreal
