SMART Cities Leadership: Creating Connected Communities

  • The SMART municipal future is coming. Are you and your department ready?

    Smart cities is the topic of endless conversation, anticipation, and speculation in the municipal sector. But until now there has been little more than discussion groups and conferences to deepen one’s knowledge. The Schulich Executive Education Centre’s new one-of-a-kind Smart Cities Leadership program will close that gap by pulling back the curtain and comprehensively addressing the art and science of smart implementation.

    Participants will do a deep dive into trends in smart design and management, and gain a comprehensive overview of all the elements and dimensions which must be considered and managed in order to move to a successful smart future in their municipality
