Altervilles Master in Political and Strategic Alternatives for Towns
Political and Strategic Alternatives for the Towns, Cities and Metropolises of Tomorrow
It is intended to train non-specialized, urban-policy-and-strategy professionals destined to work within urban contracting and public-sector contracting, as well as for private- and tertiary-sector organizations involved in the creation of urban strategies and policies.
Train professionals benefitting from a high level of urban knowledge, capable of developing an overall view of urban and metropolitan phenomena and issues and then applying it to a variety of sectors.
Provide them with the capacity to imagine alternative development strategies for second cities, regional capitals, old industrialized towns and cities, and "intermediate" metropolitan zones.
Develop a training programme "based upon alternatives", by raising student awareness regarding the variety of situations, resources and political and technical options that are available.
Implement a research-based training approach to upon and the exploitation of existing scientific studies, notably those linked to "new urban criticism".
The Altervilles master's degree benefits from networks of international partners developed by Université “Jean Monnet” and Sciences Po Lyon.
