Meeting the challenges and demands of managing increasingly complex land transport systems in today’s dynamic urban landscape require professionals to have a multi-disciplinary skills set. In partnership with the Land Transport Authority (LTA), the Master of Management [Urban Transportation] programme equips students with organisational management skills as well as specialised knowledge in urban transport management. This enables graduates of this programme to play a leading role in policy formulation, planning, management and operations of land transport systems in cities around the world. The programme leverages on the global experience and expertise of senior professionals, scholars and researchers in transport- and management-related fields.
