Objectives

This training will offer you the opportunity to:

  • Broaden your knowledge and understanding of global mobility issues and offer you a comprehensive overview of PT systems worldwide;
  • Gain an insight into the many challenges facing the public transport sector now and into the future;
  • Analyse and discuss the latest trends and developments in the sector with PT experts and experienced managers from all over the world;
  • Develop a professional network of international contacts and facilitate beneficial exchange of experiences with both peers and experts from diverse backgrounds.

Methodology

  • Interactive plenary sessions including overview of the topic, presentation and discussion of the latest trends and developments
  • Presentation of good practice examples by experts and participants
  • Additional opportunity to exchange experiences and discuss hot topics during workshops in smaller groups
  • Site visits with focus on innovations in each PT system
  • Collaboration and communication in between modules through teamwork (project assignment – approx. 2 days in addition to course participation)

Target audience

  • High-potential managers with daily responsibilities in the administration, operation or maintenance of a public transport network.
  • Applicants must understand and speak English fluently. This is indeed crucial to participate in discussions and workshops (participants make oral presentations throughout the course).
  • Applicants are either new to the public transport sector with expertise in a specific area or have been working in a PT company for some years but would like to have a better insight into the entire sector.
  • Applicants are persons eager to learn from others but also to share their knowledge and experience. Networking is a key aspect of this course.
  • Selected participants must be aware that taking part in such a programme requires some commitment (and time!) before and during each module – reading material, doing some research work and collaborating with other students in-between modules.
