The International Master’s Programme in Environmental Management and Policy from Lund University's students are challenged to develop professional skills, knowledge and networks in close collaboration with industry and society – to this end, the EMP is set up to convey a detailed and methodical understanding of technical systems.
Our teaching approach is characterized by a multidisciplinary and multicultural classroom - features that apply to both teachers and students – contributing to a creative atmosphere that pervades the whole of the institute.
EMP courses are allocated to five major blocks:
- Courses teaching knowledge and skills fundamental for all sustainability professionals
- Courses related to Corporate Environmental Management
- Courses related to environmental policy at urban, regional, national and international levels
- Elective courses that allow students to choose between going deeper into environmental policy or environmental management, including team-based consulting or an internship
- Capstone courses that allow for a focused specialization built on applying all preceding learning in the programme to specific tasks and circumstances
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. Several graduates have continued as entrepreneurs, or have enrolled in PhD programmes and then pursued academic or business careers. In effect, our alumni are integrated into all relevant professional sectors related to sustainability.
