More than half the world's population now live in cities. In just a few decades from now, the population of urban areas will exceed the entire global population today. Ongoing urbanization presents opportunities and challenges that are of great interest to policy-makers and researchers.

In this course, you will be introduced to the economic forces that underpin urbanization and shape metropolitan areas. Along the way, you will be equipped with knowledge and skills that help answer questions such as: Why are firms and people moving to cities? How do we measure the performance of urban areas? What factors explain why some cities thrive, while others struggle? What can policy-makers do to improve the economic, social, and environmental performance of their cities? To understand these topics, students will participate in lectures, self-directed work, and several field visits.
