About

This MSc provides the opportunity to understand socio-economic change in different towns, cities, regions and city-regions globally.

Overview

Our MSc Urban and Regional Development programme (accredited by RICS and partially accredited by the RTPI) is designed for those who want to understand more about urban and regional economic development theory and practice.The economic development of cities and regions is becoming increasingly important in a global economy characterised by rapid technological change, transforming economies and globalisation. This programme will equip you with the knowledge, skills and critical thinking to meet the challenge of developing competitive, smart, sustainable and inclusive economies.Our focus is on enabling you to develop your knowledge and understanding about the nature and source of this economic change and recognise its uneven impact on different social groups, communities and countries. Drawing on topical theoretical debates about uneven spatial development and the challenges this presents at particular spatial scales, this programme will provide you with the key skills – data analysis, research and problem-solving – required to shape local and regional development through policy and practice innovation.We also focus on network and consensus building by looking at structures and frameworks for engaging and working across different industries, sectors and organisations – including public, private, third sector and social enterprises.You’ll gain the critical skills and robust policy understanding to address the practical challenge of designing strategies which will help cities and regions to become more innovative and resilient places in which to live and work.
