IHS is the international Institute of Urban Management associated with the Erasmus University Rotterdam. Operating on a global scale, IHS offers specialized post graduate education, training, advisory services and applied research in the fields of urban management, housing and urban environment, with the mission to develop human and institutional capacities, to reduce poverty and improve the quality of life in cities. In 2007, IHS won the UN-Habitat Scroll of Honor Award for leading the way as a global centre of excellence and knowledge.

IHS believes that cities are the engines of economic growth. Cities are, however, in great need of innovative urban professionals to ensure that growth is sustainable and inclusive. In order to remain updated about trends, challenges and practices in the field, IHS academic staff actively develops knowledge in the fields of social, economic, environmental and spatial dimensions of urban development and link this to governance and management approaches as well as various finance, policy and planning tools. The topics of study offered at IHS include: urban dynamics; urban governance; urban policy and planning; urban finance and economics; urban land development; housing strategies; urban social development and livelihood strategy; informal settlements (slums); attracting and mapping foreign direct investment in cities; urban environment and climate change and city development strategies.

IHS has a large professional network of partners which is employed for delivering education, advisory services and applied research. This network includes universities as well as research and education Institutes worldwide.
