Course content

The Sustainability and Consultancy MSc offers a grounding in the broad range of sustainability topics beyond just environmental issues - from project development to corporate sustainability strategy. It will also develop the professional skills you will need to practice in the field of sustainability consultancy.

Sustainability is an integrated issue across our teaching, rather than separating the environmental, economic and social elements.

Specialist modules are delivered by academic staff, practising consultants and other practitioners, giving you exposure to real-life, international case studies with a good understanding of contemporary management techniques and solutions.

This course aligns closely with the challenges of sustainability and the skills that employers say they need to tackle those challenges, with a strong emphasis on project skills.
