MSc in Renewable Energy & Environmental Finance

Programme 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, if you are in full-time employment, employer support is essential to undertake the part-time option as it requires class attendance and some work on group assignments during the working day.
