The Urban Policy Lab is Milano’s oldest and largest client-centered course.

Working under the supervision of a faculty supervisor, students research the issue, identify possible solutions, and analyze them. The students present their recommendations to the client in a formal briefing and afterward submit a written report incorporating client feedback.
