Course Summary

This MSc was previously known as Carbon Finance, but has been renamed to better reflect the content of the programme.

The challenge of responding and adapting to climate change will drive trillions of dollars of new investment over the coming decades, with major changes required across the economy, in energy production and consumption, industry, buildings, transport, infrastructure, forests and agriculture.

What will I learn?

Previously known as Carbon Finance but renamed to better reflect the content of the programme, this MSc is dedicated to developing professionals in the field of climate change finance and investment.

Designed to develop your understanding of how the challenges of climate change are driving trillions of dollars of new investment in a huge range of sectors, including energy production, and housing and infrastructure, the programme will also prepare you to deliver this investment with advanced knowledge and skills.

Very few business schools in the world have a similar depth of expertise in climate change finance and investment.

Students will come away from the course with the skills to both implement and critique climate mitigation and adaptation project valuation methods with focus on energy and transportation areas.
