Since continued urbanization will be a major trend globally in the coming decades (from today’s three billion to the anticipated six billion urban inhabitants by 2050), future career opportunities for successful NMP SUT students cover a wide field of potential employers and/or clients in both OECD and non-OECD countries. The five study tracks reflect different but equally valid ways to address critical challenges linked to urban transitions. Career opportunities will thus be found in the public sector (agencies for urban/regional planning, management, and governance), in development institutions (local and international), and in both NGOs and consultancy firms active in the field of urban transitions. As the NMP SUT is intergrated into the resaerch environments at the five participating universities it also provides a solid platform for pursuing an academic career.
