    International planning, economic development and infrastructure

    According to the Planetizen guide, which schools are ranked in the top five for all of the following specializations:
    * International planning
    * Economic development
    * Infrastructure

    In other words, which programs best combine these three elements? Thanks.

    Maybe you should look at the Planetizen guide?

    A good guess the school thread......

    Ok I'll guess

    Columbia University: http://www.sipa.columbia.edu/academi...hitecture.html

    Cornell University

    University of Wisconsin because of access to: http://www.engr.wisc.edu/majorsandcertificates.html and above all access to all of this real life boots on the ground type of professional development coursework: http://epdweb.engr.wisc.edu/Courses/...ksandMunicipal

    I am not so much looking at dual-degree programs where I study planning in one school and international affairs in another. Instead I am looking at a program in which international perspective is incorporated in the school's teaching and practice.

    Reply from UNC

    This, from UNC in response to pointed queries about its international focus:

    "Although all of our professor have international experience, we do not in fact offer many international planning courses..."

    UPenn also admitted as much via email about their international strength.

    Based on my research, the following have to be considered:
    * MIT
    * Berkeley
    * UI/Urbana-Champaign
    * USC
    * Cornell
