Course content

Sustainable development - the balancing of environmental, economic and social goals - is the greatest challenge facing the planet today. While international initiatives often state the goals and targets needed to achieve sustainable development, a significant gap exists in developing the skills, practices and processes that advance good governance. In the context of global challenges such as climate change, energy, biodiversity, food production and clean water, new and innovative forms of collaboration and partnership are needed to bring together societal, business and scientific interests.

Our MSc in Environmental Partnership Management is an innovative and exciting programme to provide future leaders with the skills and tools needed to develop the green economy. It responds to the gap for skilled graduates and environmental professionals who can work across civil society, business and government in building partnerships for sustainable development. The MSc will combine knowledge on environmental and social issues together with practical business skills to enable the design, management and delivery of effective multistakeholder partnerships.
