MPSM-550-01 CityLab - The Geneva Experience
No faculty information available
City Lab is a multi-disciplinary course where students, faculty, and professional partners from various backgrounds work in tandem with a city’s leaders to solve real-world problems at an urban and metropolitan scale. The course offers a Jesuit-inspired clinical experience consistent with a commitment to applied studies. Georgetown’s traditional strengths in curriculum and faculty will fortify the clinical experience.
Since most urban issues take time to identify, study, and analyze, City Lab provides an opportunity to develop a long-term relationship with a city to tackle multiple urban challenges and planning projects that may be intertwined and interrelated. City Lab will serve as a true urban laboratory whereby the city will benefit from the academic expertise of the University: human resources, technology, sports industry management, public relations, real estate, sociology, law, and history among others.
