Master Urban, Port and Transport Economics

State of the art transport, logistics and modern cities are essential for a well-functioning economy. The Urban, Port and Transport Economics programme focuses on how to optimise these key elements of modern society. Our lecturers are actively involved in the latest developments in international economic research, consultancy and advice.

Through interactive lectures, challenging assignments and lively debates they will show you how to apply the appropriate methods – both qualitative and quantitative – when dealing with a wide range of real-life issues. How do we find smart ways to deal with congestion and pollution? How can we sustain operations under large disruptions? What role can city planning play in achieving productive cross fertilisation between all available sources of knowledge and enterprise? What is the future of ports in the logistics chain?

Our curriculum closely ties in with several sustainable development goals asking question such as: how do cities become sustainable, how to build resilient and sustainable infrastructure, or how to start the energy transition? The study of Urban, Port and Transport Economics teaches you to look at such important issues in a way that is both scientific and practicaI.
