The Institute for Housing and Urban Development Studies (IHS) of Erasmus University Rotterdam, and the Public Administration department in the Erasmus School of Social and Behavioural Sciences (ESSB), have jointly launched a new Master’s programme. This one-year, full-time programme is a unique collaboration between the institutes and awards a Master of Science in Public Administration: Urban Governance Specialisation. The course will combine the excellent reputation of ESSB in governance studies and public management with IHS’s awarding-winning (UN-Habitat Scroll of Honour), 60 year history in the field of urban management.
About the programme
The curriculum is designed to help students develop interdisciplinary expertise in analysing and tackling urban governance issues. It integrates and combines knowledge from public administration, political science, urban economy, sociology and urban planning. It enables participants to gain knowledge on current trends, topics, innovations and tools from various disciplines in the field of urban governance (such as the circular economy, place-making, co-production, self-organisation etc.)
“Cities are at the heart of cultural, social and political innovation. This new Master’s specialisation offers an opportunity to learn how to develop innovative urban policies and appropriate management strategies that harness the potential of cities.” said Dr. Ingmar van Meerkerk, coordinator of the programme.
Erasmus University Rotterdam is #1 worldwide for Public Administration studies according to the Shanghai Ranking.
