About

The multi-disciplinary Environment and Sustainable Development programme of the University of Glasgow is designed for those wanting to pursue a career in environmental project management. It will give you the tools to apply economic analysis to a range of environmental management problems with a focus on developing countries.

Overview

Why this programme

The Environment and Sustainable Development programme of the University of Glasgow will provide you with a good understanding of:

  • the key issues confronting economies in attempting to reconcile economic growth with environmental and ecological constraints
  • the relationship between environment and the economic system with an emphasis on environmental valuation, cost-benefit analysis, market and policy failure, trade and the environment, the economics of pollution control and climate change
  • the role of international environmental agreements

This programme provides the empirical tools, data, and STATA software training that will enable students to investigate economic development and to prepare an independent empirical analysis.

You will have access to all conferences and seminars hosted by the Glasgow Centre for International Development. This means you will be exposed to interdisciplinary research and approaches to development in the fields of medicine, veterinary medicine, environmental management, sustainability, or education.

The Adam Smith Business School celebrates the legacy of Adam Smith by developing enlightened, enterprising and engaged graduates and internationally-recognised research with real social impact.

Take advantage of our individualised skills development programme, which will ensure you balance academic theory with crucial employability skills to help you maximise your potential and achieve your career goals.

Career prospects

The programme is designed to equip you for a career as professional planning staff in private or public sector organisations concerned with the design and implementation of environmental policies, environmental issues in international agencies or research. Recent graduates have been employed as development practitioners and environmental policy analysts for organisations such as BP, Royal Society for the Protection of Birds and public sector bodies. We have a dedicated careers and employability team who provide 1-2-1 support and advice, group workshops, employer events on campus and networking opportunities throughout the year to help you with your career prospects.
