Why studying this programme?

There has been a growing need of professionals who are increasingly required to undertake projects internationally in the urban development field. Mundus Urbano builds the capacity to meet the challenges that this type of work presents and prepares both professionals and academics for critically analysing and assessing the growing problems in urban areas internationally. Mundus Urbano alumni are skilled to work in institutions as international cooperation agencies, municipal planning offices, research institutes and consultancy firms, involved in international finance, foreign aid, human settlements, slum improvement and infrastructure development, among other areas. Why are you studying MU? Here is what our students have to say.

Thinking Outside the Box: Exhibition and lecture series

“‘Thinking outside the Box’ is more than an exhibition; it is also a reflection of urban reality we are facing today. The complexity of urban systems and the uncertainty of the impact of urbanization and climate change ask for new ways of thinking about planning objectives and solidarity in action. We certainly can’t change the urban dynamics, but we can point at the existing and emerging issues to provoke both critical and creative thinking, as raising local awareness is the first, small step to make the world a better place.” -- Prof. Dr.-Ing. Annette Rudolph-Cleff
