Supercities

Programme
SuperCities are becoming the nodes of social and economic activation, in places with a special magnetism for the attraction of talent and innovative initiatives. They are the "magical" places where the intelligence of the territory is expressed with all its fullness.

We live in a world of cities, and our planet is increasingly urban. Cities are the new engines of the global economy, and at the same time they can be the main actors to face the challenges of climate change and fight against inequality and poverty. If in the past we lived through stages in which the world was organised by empires and then by nation-states, in the future we will live increasingly in a world of cities, in a world of SuperCities.

We are living an unprecedented "digital revolution" at the confluence of 4 megatrends that are cloud computing, mobile devices, social networks and intelligence applied to "Big Data". We have never had more computing capacity or easier access to information, or better physical and digital communication options and this is changing the way people live, work, have fun, learn and relate. Politics, the economy, society, and of course cities are also changing, which today enjoy opportunities that previously didn’t exist.

With this Supercities programme, we’ll be preparing a new generation of leaders who aspire to transform the world through cities. Leaders who can be integrated into innovation projects promoted by cutting-edge technology companies in the field of Cities, or develop as entrepreneurs in a disruptive environment in which they will create their own startups through multidisciplinary collaboration.

The training and experience acquired by the students of the Supercities programme will also allow them to collaborate with development banks, multinational organisations and urban agencies working in the field of design and construction of the cities of the future.
