Overview

Something for you?

  • Our approach is highly multidisciplinary to include related fields as economic geography, business studies, environmental studies, and history.
  • You will receive a thorough training to study local-global interaction conceptually and analytically.
  • We will draw from fundamental debates on values, welfare and capitalism.  
  • You will take part in fundamental discussions on globalisation, localisation, financialisation and sustainability .

What will you learn

The world economy has become more globalised, more integrated and more competitive. In this Master's you will study the relations between business activities and spatial development in view of a globalising, and increasingly networked world economy. You will be introduced to mainstream and alternative perspectives on business location, networking and urban and regional development. This is followed by in-depth courses on city marketing and relational geography, and by research activities focusing on local-global links of business, governments and other organisations.
