Besides a strong training in quantitative economic techniques, you are confronted with relevant economic theories at micro, behavioral, and institutional level to help you understand the nature of these problems and solutions.
Topics include environmental degradation and pollution, climate change, sustainable markets, the bio-economy, and urban and rural development in light of pressing issues such as environmental tipping points, unequal access to resources, and rising inequality.
Typically graduates of the master's Economics of Sustainability program at Wageningen University and Research end up in connecting ‘spider in a web’ roles, being able to work with people from different departments and backgrounds. As a graduate you have various career opportunities. You can, for example work in Commercial Business, NGO’s or a (semi-)Government department. Or as a researcher or teacher at a university.
