The Urban Leadership Exchange is a certificate of completion offered by the IMIx Executive Program in collaboration with the Master of Urban Innovation program at the University of Toronto Mississauga’s Institute for Management & Innovation.
Led by distinguished University of Toronto faculty, the two half-day program brings together leading researchers and practitioners to help participants promote positive economic and social change through urban innovation.
Each ULX session pairs a U of T faculty member with a thought leader to explore urban innovation through one of three lenses: cities as centres of the innovation economy, as sites of technological innovation, or as sources of policy innovation.
