We are increassingly aware of our responsibilities in the use and management of the natural environment. Knowledge is needed to find solutions to growing environmental problems, such as pollution and depleted resources. This programme will enable you develop the knowledge and skills needed to address these important issues.
Knowledge and understanding of our biological natural resources and their sustainable use is urgently needed. In this programme, you will heighten your knowledge of economics or business administration, and learn how that knowledge can be applied to environmental issues. Environmental issues are brought to the classroom via SLU´s extensive links with natural resource-based industries.
These meetings aid understanding and application of skills in economics and business administration as a tool for addressing current problems.
Depending on your major (either business administration or economics), you will develop understanding and insight into local and global use and management of natural resources. You will learn to address complex problems from both an industrial and societal perspective, with an interest in understanding and promoting sustainable development. With business administration as a major, you will study environmental management, production economics, quantitative finance, strategic management, environmental risk management and accounting as well as ethics. As an economics major, you will develop your understanding of micro economic theory, environmental policy, econometrics, policy evaluation and sustainable development. Part of the programme is arranged jointly with Uppsala University.
