The Master Course in Urban Management is open for graduates from various disciplines. It has a focus on development situations in the South and transition countries. The course offers training in management approaches that cross the boundaries of isolated professional knowledge and aims to present workable solutions for city management. The issues addressed are related to the most urgent problems of urban development in many countries, including environmental degradation, uncontrolled urban growth, insecure land tenure, substandard housing conditions for the urban poor, and inadequate decision making and local planning systems. Teaching draws on case studies and experience gained by local governments, NGOs, and the private sector. German language courses are offered throughout the first year. The language of instruction is English.

The duration of the Master Course is 3 semesters including a master thesis. Two semesters are reserved for classes at the Technical University Berlin. The third semester is dedicated to further specialization and the preparation of a master thesis. Topics addressing issues derived from problems in the students’ home countries are encouraged. The program also involves internships in relevant institutions in Germany or abroad.

The number of participants is limited to a maximum of 30 people per year. The course is open to graduates from any country holding a bachelor degree or an equivalent in urban development-related fields. So far our students and graduates come from the following countries:
