This two-year International Master leverages the complementary and interdisciplinary expertise, resources and networks of four leading universities (The Consortium) in four innovative cities.

The Consortium:

Glasgow (United Kingdom) Barcelona (Spain) Rotterdam (the Netherlands) Gƶttingen (Germany)

The programme aims to examine how local places (clusters, cities and regions) and local actors (entrepreneurs, firms and policymakers) generate local competitiveness under global market conditions. This two-year programme equips you with the critical skills to make sense of the intersecting complementarity of the global and local but also provides**Ā opportunitiesĀ for practical experience**.
