Master Governing the Large Metropolis

Sciences Po
Campus Full time 2 years

The Master's programme Governing the Large Metropolis aims to prepare graduates for work on public policy issues in a variety of large metropolises beyond Europe, in relation to different types of organizations and agencies. [+]

Master Governing the Large Metropolis Programme objectives The Master's programme Governing the Large Metropolis aims to prepare graduates for work on public policy issues in a variety of large metropolises beyond Europe, in relation to different types of organizations and agencies. The world cities and urban sprawl of both the global North and the global South face massive public policy and governance challenges. The scale and speed of urbanization raise a plethora of issues, which are all covered in the programme. These include: economic development, poverty and slums, housing, health, technological and social innovation, the management of risk, infrastructure, water and waste disposal, changing labour markets, sustainable development, democratic participation. Governing populations divided and organized by class, income, religion, ethnic origin, mobility and/or gender has become even more difficult in a globalizing world where opportunities for mobility, participation in overlapping networks, interdependence and the scale of large urban regions make classic territorial conceptions of government and public policies partly obsolete. Students receive rigorous methodological training, experience from international professionals and exposure to high level academic content. The programme is taught entirely in English with a great emphasis on issues of comparative study. No ready made recipes are provided, and no simple fairy stories on the so called "best practices of good governance": the programme trains the students with a strong critical approach and management skills so as to be competent for project accounting and decision making to implement urban policy in critical environments. Systematic relations are built with urban professionals and research groups, including cities such as Bogotà, Lima, Mexico, Rio, Sao Paulo, Lagos, Beijing, Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, Istanbul, Cairo, New Delhi, Shanghai, Tokyo and Johannesburg. Going beyond geography, development studies and physical planning, the Master's programme aims at training young professionals who will take charge of public policy design and implementation in the governance of large cities in the future. Main orientations and specific features The two-year programme comprises a mix of sound interdisciplinary theoretical courses, case studies, methods and professional training: Theoretical training focuses on public policy, sociology, governance, law, economics, demography, risk and globalization, centering on issues such as housing, migration, food security, utilities, climate change, informal economy, local finance, conflict management, transports, cultural policies, and the digital city; Professional training is provided in the first year through a group project (capstone) commissioned by a private or public organization, which involves doing applied research in the urban field. Students work 1.5 days a week for six months with a professional tutor. Students also take advantage of a planned study trip to a large urban center (past cities include Cairo, Istanbul, Casablanca/Tangier/Rabat). Case studies and workshops are taught by professionals; Solid methodological training in advanced quantitative and qualitative analysis, network analysis, map work, ecological data mining, and GIS training; In the second semester, regional training focuses on specific area of expertise, with historical insights on urban change. Students have to chose among African Metropolis, Arab and Mediterranean Metropolis, Asian Metropolis, Latin American Metropolis, and North American Metropolis; In the final semester, students will either undertake an internship of at least 14 weeks in a large metropolis or will spend the semester within a partner university, where they will prepare a research thesis (for those envisaging a PhD). During the whole duration of the programme, students are assisted in their course and professional orientation through a regular vocational statement exercise. The programme works in collaboration with other programmes from the Urban School. It also has a close link with research conducted at Sciences Po, notably with the research program "Cities are back in town". Career opportunities Students will have opportunities to work in the following organisations: UN organisations; Environment, health, security and food organisations; Global utility firms (water, transport, waste disposals, energy); NGO's in different sectors (democratic governance, environment, housing, development, culture…); Urban planning agencies, economic development agencies, urban political organisations; Networks of cities (C40, ICLEI etc..); Urban and regional governments; Private foundations and think tanks; Private developers and international consultants in the large metropolis.

The ITA master is a new European two-year master programme within the EIT Digital Master School “ICT Innovation”. The aim of the EIT (European Institute of Innovation and Technology) is to breed a new generation of technology-skilled entrepreneurs by enhancing high-profile technology education with a strong business orientation. For the field of ICT, the EIT has created through the KIC ICT Labs (one of the Knowledge and Innovation Communities), several ICT master programmes to combine ICT engineering on an advanced level with a business minor focused on Innovation and Entrepreneurship (I&E). The goal is to make students that take part in this education the elite group of forthcoming ICT professionals. The unique features of this advanced level education are: A standardized I&E minor Mobility among universities (one year at one university and the second year at another university) Specialisation at one of the European top universities Personal industrial relationships for the students, including industrial mentors and internships at EIT Digital non-university partners as part of the study plan. Thematic area grounding and utilization of resources from EIT Digital research and business activities There are seven ICT programmes (majors), one of them is Internet Technology and Architecture (ITA) offered by a consortium of UPMC (Paris), TUB (Berlin), KTH (Stockholm), UNITN (Trento), UNS (Nice), ITA/TB (Brest) and UPM (Madrid). The first year consists of one semester of core courses on ITA and one semester on Entrepreneurial education. For the second year, students can select a specialisation and complete a thesis project at one of the industrial partners. Internet Technology and Architecture The technical major in Internet Technology and Architecture is a focused programme of study involving advanced networking technologies and architectures for the design and management of modern distributed computer systems and networks. This programme is in line with the challenging field of computing communication and networking technologies that has lately received considerable attention and is today considered as a major topic for most curriculum studies in IT. Programme The aim of the Internet Technology and Architecture programme is to develop a coherent set of theoretical knowledge and professional understandings and skills in computer networks. Emphasis is placed on understanding of current research issues as well as detailed practical experience of network design, development, implementation, and management. The first year will be similar at the four entry points UPMC, TUB, KTH and UNITN with four basic courses on the foundations of networking, network design and modelling, wireless and mobile computing, and advanced next generation networks. In addition, some elective courses may be chosen to prepare for a specialisation. This programme also includes an I&E minor that will provide students with both theoretical concepts and practical tools that will develop critical thinking in assessing entrepreneurship opportunities and devising appropriate strategies to turn ideas into profitable business ventures. The I&E minor consists two courses: The I&E basics course provides an introduction to business and management. The Business Development Lab will extend media systems engineering projects by a market survey, a business model generation process, and a venture development exercise. Students participating in the ITA track will be offered an internship in a partner industry or research centre of the EIT Digital to work on a thesis project. Directly linked to the master thesis, there will be an I&E minor thesis that will specify the requirements, strategy and business plan for the selected thesis project. Specialisations Specialisations will be provided in the second year. The ITA major will offer seven specialisations, each at a different location: User-centric networking at UPMC Internet technologies at TUB Communication systems design at KTH Wireless and mobile access networks at UNITN Networked Analysis and Experimentation at UNS Internet of things at IT/TB Technologies for Internet Mobile and Ubiquitous Computing at UPM To meet the requirements for geographic mobility, the chosen exit point needs to differ from the chosen entry point.

Best Masters in Arts in Germany 2017. Orchestra musicians have to meet both particular and complex demands regarding genre (sinfonia, opera, operetta, musical etc.), cast and style of the works which will be performed (knowledge of interpretational characteristics ranging from Early Music to vanguard playing techniques of the newest compositions is expected). Therefore, it is necessary for the musician to possess a high artistic potential as well as the ability to work as part of an ensemble and to take up a subordinate role in a group (following a concertmaster, principal, conductor). Instrumental excellence regarding playing techniques and interpretational skills is the fundamental prerequisite for a successful orchestra musician. Therefore, the Artistic Module (“Künstlerisches Kernmodul”, semesters 1–4) is the essential part of each semester. Ensemble playing from chamber music to orchestra playing in different contexts (university orchestra, practical period with a professional orchestra) is the pillar of the Key Module (“Schwerpunktmodul”, semesters 1–4). The core segment is supported by study fields such as audition training, concentration exercises and special playing techniques/secondary as well as historical instruments. The Module Applied Music Theory and Musicology (“Angewandte Musiktheorie und Musikwissenschaft”, semesters 1–2) has been aligned with the core area of the course. The Master’s course is characterized by its highly practical component which leads directly to the practical period in the second half of the study. During the 3rd and the 4th semesters, students choose one module out of a module catalogue to either refine their artistic skills or to specialise. APTITUDE TEST REQUIREMENTS Aptitude test in main subject (supplement to the aptitude test regulations of Rostock College of Music and Drama) Violin One etude or caprice of your choice (e.g. Dont op. 35, Vieuxtemps, Wieniawski op. 10, Paganini) A first movement (with cadenza) from a concerto by W.

Orchestra musicians have to meet both particular and complex demands regarding genre (sinfonia, opera, operetta, musical etc.), cast and style of the works which will be performed (knowledge of interpretational characteristics ranging from Early Music to vanguard playing techniques of the newest compositions is expected). Therefore, it is necessary for the musician to possess a high artistic potential as well as the ability to work as part of an ensemble and to take up a subordinate role in a group (following a concertmaster, principal, conductor).

Orchestra musicians have to meet both particular and complex demands regarding genre (sinfonia, opera, operetta, musical etc.), cast and style of the works which will be performed (knowledge of interpretational characteristics ranging from Early Music to vanguard playing techniques of the newest compositions is expected). Therefore, it is necessary for the musician to possess a high artistic potential as well as the ability to work as part of an ensemble and to take up a subordinate role in a group (following a concertmaster, principal, conductor). Instrumental excellence regarding playing techniques and interpretational skills is the fundamental prerequisite for a successful orchestra musician. Therefore, the Artistic Module (“Künstlerisches Kernmodul”, semesters 1–4) is the essential part of each semester. Ensemble playing from chamber music to orchestra playing in different contexts (university orchestra, practical period with a professional orchestra) is the pillar of the Key Module (“Schwerpunktmodul”, semesters 1–4). The core segment is supported by study fields such as audition training, concentration exercises and special playing techniques/secondary as well as historical instruments. The Module Applied Music Theory and Musicology (“Angewandte Musiktheorie und Musikwissenschaft”, semesters 1–2) has been aligned with the core area of the course. The Master’s course is characterized by its highly practical component which leads directly to the practical period in the second half of the study. During the 3rd and the 4th semesters, students choose one module out of a module catalogue to either refine their artistic skills or to specialise. APTITUDE TEST REQUIREMENTS Aptitude test in main subject (supplement to the aptitude test regulations of Rostock College of Music and Drama) Part 1: Three or four short works of varying characters and advanced levels of difficulty from different eras to demonstrate stylistic assurance. Duration: approx. 10 minutes Part 2: A Mozart concerto or a comparable audition concerto and 5 orchestral parts from the DOV (German Orchestral Association) audition booklet Duration: approx. 10 minutes [-]
