Overview

Sustainable development has become one of the key policy drivers in many societies. It covers a wide spectrum of inter-related moral, economic, environmental, and social issues. Public and private institutions engaged with the sustainable development agenda need to appreciate the challenges and policy implications of the Sustainable Development Goals.

The Diploma in Moral Economy and Sustainable Development is an intensive, one-year full-time programme. It responds to the emerging sustainable development agenda from a moral economic perspective and employs a multi-disciplinary approach aiming to provide students with the necessary knowledge, tools, and skills to pursue successful research or professional career in areas of sustainable development.

The core taught modules provide an in-depth analysis of the core issues and debates surrounding sustainable development in the contemporary global and professional contexts. The optional (elective) modules enable students to develop in-depth knowledge and understanding of moral, economic, environmental and social issues.
