Leadership

The Urban and Regional Studies Institute is for students inspired by the idea of improving cities, towns and communities through strong and experienced leadership

Whether you see yourself in the public, private or non-profit sector – a city manager or a real estate developer, for example – a degree in Urban and Regional Studies will bring you that opportunity to contribute to and making a difference in communities.

It's the program from which staff members in 90 percent of Minnesota cities with populations of more than 10,000 have graduated. Unique among Minnesota universities, URSI combines broad-based knowledge with real-world projects. You'll stay on top of changing policies, emerging issues and the latest trends. And you'll emerge from the program with expertise and experience already in hand.
