IE University School of Architecture and Design's Dual Degree in Economics and Urban Studies program is aimed at individuals with an interdisciplinary mindset: passionate about analytical thinking, data and economics, but also determined to tackle the challenges associated with cities and urban development.


The dual degree is a unique combination of programs that provide a solid grounding in the complex principles underpinning economics in the digital and tech era, as well as the conceptual and analytical frameworks needed for professions that deal with urban change.


Using advanced tools and techniques, problem-based learning and a hands-on approach to real-world issues, the program prepares students for careers in a variety of areas including urban change, public policy and sustainability - whether in the public, private or non-profit sectors.
