Course content

Regional Management is extremely diverse: It aims to develop dynamism in regions and better utilize potentials, as well as designing sustainable living areas and making them more attractive.

Students will acquire a high level of subject expertise and excellent social skills, which will enable them to assume the regional-level management roles that are commonly found in companies. They will examine the strengths and challenges of a region, learn to involve key actors, plan projects, acquire financial resources and support regional development processes.

The course is interdisciplinary with a focus on practical experience. This is achieved by drawing on the expertise of our professors, involving external experts with real-life experience as part-time lecturers, and carrying out case studies, project studies and excursions.
