Content

The MSC in Ecological Economics prepares you to contribute to solving sustainability problems by focusing on the intersection between the environment, the economy, and economic decision-making.

The interdisciplinary nature of the programme links environmental, social and economic systems together, and focuses on the mutual dependences between them. This gives you a unique understanding of the consequences of human economic activity on the planet’s limited resources.

You will participate in sustainability problem-solving with an emphasis on practical experience and ‘hands on’ learning. You will experience training in a wide range of quantitative and qualitative methodologies and the associated data analysis using real world case studies.
