About

Climate change, environmental changes and the use of the world’s natural resources have an impact on all of us. The future challenges are huge and numerous – after graduation from the Environmental and Natural Resource Economics programme at the University of Copenhagen, you can help solve them.

Overview

The Environmental and Natural Resource Economics programme at the University of Copenhagen is a social science programme where you study economics, the environment and natural resources in both a national and global context.

Career opportunities

With the increasing global focus on sustainability, you will have excellent career opportunities as a graduate from the MSc programme in Environmental and Natural Resource Economics. You will typically work with environmental and natural resource economic analyses, project and policy assessments, as well as management and development assignments.

You will often be working in a multidisciplinary setting and often with some degree of leadership or management as you, with your knowledge of both social and natural science, will often become the link between different disciplines, e.g. between economists and biologists and developers and conservationists.

You may work in private companies, public institutions or NGOs, both nationally and internationally – and often in the green sector where the strong growth creates more and more interesting job opportunities for environmental and natural resource economists.
