The International Master’s Programme in Environmental Management and Policy from Lund University enables graduates to inspire and drive change by developing their abilities to evaluate, design, and implement management and policy responses to complex environmental challenges.


From a fundamentally practical standpoint, in that change starts in the reality of today, our students are challenged to de­velop professional skills, knowledge and networks in close collaboration with the surrounding society. 

Key features of the Environmental Management and Policy programme from Lund University include its interdisciplinary, international and applied nature. The dual focus on environmental policy and environmental management is another central feature. This is based on our conviction that decision makers within both environmental policy and environmental management benefit vastly from having this mutual understanding. Increasingly we find that many alumni, regardless of their employer, work in the intersection of public policy and corporate management to move the environmental agenda further.

Career prospects

An EMP MSc graduate will have opened the door to a wide range of environment- and sustainability-focused careers on the international. Our alumni have taken positions in industry, consultancy, government, EU bodies, NGOs and international organisations such as the UN, the World Bank and the OECD.
