The Urbanization of Global Challenges:
Exploring Emerging 'Glocal' Policy Regimes
Doctoral Candidate, Uppsalla University, Sweden
The value of education increases during times of great change. The world is facing a talent shortage that could significantly impact economic growth, sustainability, health, the environment, and global competitiveness. At the same time, the world has become increasingly intelligent, instrumented, and interconnected. Developing “real world readiness analytics skills” will enable our students to conceive and develop innovative solutions and applications to address societal and business challenges and opportunities in the 21st century.
