We launch the new International Master’s in Global Smart City Manager


It is expected that the urban population will double by 2050, making urbanization one of the most transformative trends of the 21st century. In this context, Zigurat Global Institute of Technology and the KNOWURBANNET Association present the new Master’s in Global Smart City Manager, aimed at remodeling urban planning and design. This training, which will be available in Spanish and English version, is designed under the multidisciplinary framework of the Smart City concept, responding to the growing demand for new profiles that should lead the transition of sustainable development and information management, currently required by many cities of the world. The importance of Smart Management, Big Data, Open Data and the evolution towards a 100% digital administration are some of the key issues that will be addressed during the master's program, providing participants with the new competencies required to fit the profiles such as Smart City Managers or Urban Technologists.Zigurat and KNOWURBANNET opt for the development and transmission of knowledge through academic training, in order to provide managers and experts in all areas with all the tools necessary to face the new challenges that urban transformation processes will generate. In order to obtain answers to this new paradigm of Smart Cities, the application of the best strategies is required. Students of our programs can take advantage of and benefit from the multiple agreements and collaborations that Zigurat and KNOWURBANNET have with associations and entities in the sector, such as Orange and UNHABITAT, which implement technology, urban planning and innovation in cities all around the world. Thanks to our experience in the sector, we can counsel the participants of our masters on any of their professional concerns, in addition to guiding them through the new challenges posed by the market.
