Hey Raj,


This is a very interesting field that you will be entering after your course in Urban Management and Governance.


Urban areas are complex entities with a concentration of people supported 

by utilities and services held together by rules and institutions.


They are growing at a rapid pace in terms of population and geography.

Urban areas need constant attention to maintain existing structure and

manage future expansion. 


Urban Management is an upcoming field requiring 

specialized knowledge of urban settlements and management practices. 


Urban managers understand how townships and cities function and they

strive to improve the social, technological, operational and financial 

functioning of urban areas with the aim of improving livability



The XUMG is the University’s leading initiative to develop, transfer 

and disseminate knowledge about building sustainable, smart and 

liveable cities



Program Structure:


The MBA-UMG Program includes core and elective coursework and other

learning segments of 111 credits. Each credit requires 10 hours of 

classroom contact or its field equivalent, and another 10 hours 

outside the classroom for preparatory reading and assignments.


Students are thus expected to spend about 70 hours a week for 

their academic work, in preparation for the rigours of a public 

management career. 

The core courses provide the conceptual and 

theoretical fundamentals of management, urban analysis and spatial 

development, and the analytical frameworks and tools for field 

learning. 

These are augmented by Urban Learning Experience (Urban Studio),

Urban Management Internship, UMGP Colloquium, Immersion Courses, seminars

and leadership talks.
