Overview of the MSc in Sustainability, Entrepreneurship and Design offered by Brunel University London

The results of unsustainable human development in the 21st century are evident as climate change, species extinction, pollution, poverty and inequality become inescapable global realities. The next big challenge for society is to transform our economy to incorporate the principles of sustainability. This presents an exciting opportunity to rethink, redesign and rebuild a positive future for business practice.

The global market for environmental products and services is projected to double from USD 1,370 billion per year to USD 2,740 billion by 2020. Half of this market is in energy efficiency and the balance in sustainable transport, water supply, sanitation and waste management. 2.3 million people have in recent years found new jobs in the renewable energy sector alone. Employment in alternative energies may rise to 2.1 million in wind and 6.3 million in solar power by 2030.

Careers and your future

After completing the course you’ll be equipped with the skills to join the huge shift globally towards creating a sustainable society. You may wish to:

  • Start your own green businesses as an entrepreneur and/or designer/innovator.
  • Become a change-maker and leader in an existing business moving towards sustainability.
  • Join a corporate institution or public bodies (e.g. local and regional government, NGOs) as a senior sustainability and environmental coordinator/manager.
  • Become an adviser on sustainable business and policy, sustainable new product development and investment/funding within existing companies, or as a consultant in new business ventures. The latter will include new 'green' product and service enterprises and sustainability service providers

If you choose the six-month Professional Development option you’ll benefit from a programme that includes mentorship from leading entrepreneurs, business leaders, inventors and academics.  You’ll receive intensive corporate experience and exposure to business start-up opportunities. This will widen your network and broaden your experience, providing you with ideas and contacts for starting up your own business or simply for starting out in the sector.
