The growing importance of Urban Studies is reflected in, for example: the rapid acceleration of urbanization world-wide; the transition to an information economy that is primarily embedded in urban areas and the emergence of 'world cities' and the main nodes of a global urban network.
Students who are interested in the complex problems of metropolitan development in a globalizing world.
