UrbanPlan for Graduate School

UrbanPlan moves students from a theoretical and ideological understanding of their discipline to the practical realities and demands of the development team and process

UrbanPlan for Graduate School

Practitioners agree that most planners, architects, and MBAs leave universities grounded in a theoretical understanding of their discipline, but with little practical experience with realities of the development process: the market and non-market dynamics, the multidisciplinary teams on which they will work, or skill in presenting to a real client. This educational “hole” makes graduates less effective development team members, policy makers, lenders or equity partners.

UrbanPlan for graduate school creates land use professionals–developers, planners, architects, investors, and policy makers–who are more sophisticated and effective when they enter the workforce.

The primary target is graduate students whose focus is land use: city and regional planning, MBA/real estate, and architecture. It can also be effective in carefully selected fourth-year undergraduate classes.

UrbanPlan moves students from a theoretical and ideological understanding of their discipline to the practical realities and demands of the development team and process.
