Qualified urban planners are in great demand in Asia. Some graduates will return to the private sector in an enhanced capacity as leader in the spatial design process to craft appropriate planning solutions. They are likely to be involved in interdisciplinary teams, either as part of a planning consultancy or a multidisciplinary design consultancy. Other graduates will take on positions in public agencies or NGOs to shape urban and regional planning initiatives and policy formulations.
