Executive MSc in Cities (EMC)

LSE Cities is launching an executive programme for global urban leaders in the public, private and civic sectors who want to re-think the way their organisations are delivering large scale change in cities.Based at LSE Cities, a leading international centre that has informed global urban practice for the last fifteen years, we will deploy the centre’s global network of city leaders and the London School of Economics and Political Science’s leading urban speciality faculty to put the latest ground-breaking research to business and public action.

This transformational programme will mix the latest research on global urban disruptions such as climate change, urban inequalities and technology revolutions with the necessary leadership skills to help participants strategise, engage and deliver change.The EMC will deliver value through innovative teaching techniques, such as real organisational challenges, reverse classroom teaching, coaching and consultancy within the participants’ organisation. Ultimately it will connect participants to a new lifetime peer network of urban leaders and disruptors.

Executive Summer School

LSE Cities will be running an intensive week-long Executive programme on London and Global Cities in summer 2016.

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.
