COMPREHENSIVE APPROACH

URB offers an interdisciplinary approach with an emphasis on management skills that allows graduates to view the city as a complex and multilayered phenomenon - the most challenging, long-term and sustainable project in human history. This unique approach helps graduates develop a deep understanding of the city and its people, the ability to challenge traditions without destroying them, and the ability to see and create opportunities in challenges and crises.
