Land is a very valuable and scarce resource. People need land to grow food, to build cities, for investments as well as for housing. Therefore, access to land, rights over land, the management and administration of land and the settling of land conflicts are very important for human kind. Many international conventions and declarations underline the importance of land rights and land management to achieve sustainable rural and urban development. The Master's Program "Land Management and Land Tenure" provides the necessary theoretical and practical background for future experts in this field. Courses include topics such as land policy, land tenure systems, rural and urban development, land management, land administration, cadastre, land use planning, photogrammetry, remote sensing, Geographical Information Systems (GIS), Global Positioning Systems (GPS) and land conflict management. In addition, courses on project management, presentation, mediation, intercultural communication etc. are offered. Mid-career students from all over the world are taking part in the program.
