Environmental Economics and Management
Typical background: While most students in the programme had studied economics, the programme is well suited and a perfect match also for students with some background in the natural sciences who appreciate (or want to appreciate) the powerful economic forces that influence the environment (as well as the environmental forces that influences the economy).
Programme’s emphasis: In addition to affirming the student’s mastery of economic principles, courses in law (especially administrative law), environmental economics, natural resource economics and environmental protection form the core of the study. Emphasis is placed on being able to practically solve specific cases and problems in both public and private environmental management.
Graduate’s profile: Environmental economists are already a hot (and still warming) commodity on the labour market. Both public and private sectors are in great need of them, for purposes of environmental management, adherence to stringent environmental standards or in the interest of “corporate social responsibility”.
