The world shows manifest differences in economic performances and wealth, and in the way cities and regions form part of national and global economic systems. Economic geography studies these differences and their consequences for places and communities.
The world economy has become more globalised, more integrated and more competitive. In this Master's you will study the relations between business activities and spatial development in view of a globalising, and increasingly networked world economy. You will be introduced to mainstream and alternative perspectives on business location, networking and urban and regional development. This is followed by in-depth courses on city marketing and relational geography, and by research activities focusing on local-global links of business, governments and other organisations.
