Manage your city, master your future!

Training is one of the most effective ways to strengthen capacity and to improve the potential of organisations. The participatory and action-oriented training and the international perspective of IHS aims at improving knowledge, skills and attitudes for managing the urban development processes of today. Apart from in-class activities, lectures, case studies, simulation games and practical exercises, the programme also includes visits to important projects and municipalities dealing with contemporary burning urban and housing issues. 

The IHS course programmes range from short post-graduate diploma courses to Master Degree programmes and a PhD programme in the urban management and development theme area. Within the post-graduate and master degree programmes, participants can choose either to enrol in a complete course, leading to a diploma or a degree, or in some cases to participate in one or more modules of the programme. 

Over 7.500 participants have attended IHS courses. We are proud about the IHS Alumni International Network which includes ministers, mayors, successful businessmen, university lecturers and renowned NGO activists.
