The Environmental and Natural Resource Economics programme at the University of Copenhagen focuses on solving environmental challenges and securing a green transition towards thriving societies that are both environmentally and economically sustainable.
With the increasing global focus on sustainability, you will have excellent career opportunities. You will typically work with environmental and natural resource economic analyses, project and policy assessments, as well as management and development assignments.
- Graduates often work in a multidisciplinary setting and with some degree of leadership or management. With your knowledge of both social and natural science, you become the link between different disciplines e.g., between economists and biologists, or developers and conservationists.
- You may work in private companies, public institutions, or NGOs, both in Denmark and internationally; often in the green sector where the strong growth creates more and more interesting job opportunities for environmental and natural resource economists.
