Connection to Research and Practice
The course introduces the foundations of research in geographical and urban economics, and covers influential as well as recent empirical research on these topics. The course relates to the research conducted at JIBS, especially CEnSE focus area of spatial economics, which includes research on how spatial factors relate to economic outcomes (such as entrepreneurship and renewal).

The course connects to practice through the compulsory assignment/s, which include working with empirical data to analyze issues within urban and/or geographical economics. The practical work is connected to theory since a theoretical framework is used to analyze empirical results.
