MSc in Renewable Energy & Environmental Finance

Overview

This one year full-time, or two-year part-time course is aimed at graduates with a background in a number of different fields (including Business, Economics, Finance, Engineering, Mathematics, Environmental Science and Physics) who are keen to pursue a career in the growing number of industries in the sustainable business and finance industry.

It is estimated that achieving the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030 will require investments of $5-7 trillion annually across both the public and private sector. The estimated $2.5 trillion investment gap every year in the developing world is a significant challenge but also an opportunity for policy makers, investors and businesses alike.

In this respect, the course will advance your understanding of finance theory and the application of sustainability factors (with a focus on environmental issues) to financial markets. The course also features a strong low carbon energy component and aims to equip students with creative and analytical approaches to problem-solving in the sustainable finance context as well as enhance the students’ interpersonal and leadership skills.

The programme can be undertaken on a part-time basis, thus enabling current professionals with the relevant background to combine working life with study, however this is dependent on students’ employment commitments.  Note that this is not a dedicated part-time programme and that  students will be required to attend lectures, tutorials and complete group assignments in conjunction with the full-time  cohort, for whom the schedule is primarily during working hours for a block of hours on several days a week.  Modules in autumn trimester will be delivered in a compressed format meaning that modules are taught intensively over two 6 week periods, requiring additional attendance at lectures and tutorials. Employer support is therefore essential.
