University of Edinburgh Business School offers MSc in Climate Change Finance and Investment
The University of Edinburgh Business School has changed the name of its MSc in Carbon Finance to the MSc in Climate Change Finance and Investment – this new name will take effect from the 2021/22 academic year.
The MSc in Climate Change Finance and Investment will develop students’ understanding of how climate change is driving new investment in a range of sectors, including energy production, housing, and infrastructure.
Program Director, Dr Ian Cochran, explains, "This change in name reflects the growing importance of finance and investment for climate action, and comes as programme numbers continue to rise. The programme's past and future is aligned with these trends as our curriculum combines cutting-edge practices and approaches of today built on the foundations established by carbon finance over the last two decades."
Meanwhile, Dean of the Business School, Professor Wendy Loretto, says, "Our commitment to the programme's future is part of the Business School's recognition of the importance of climate change and sustainability for the investment and finance industry. Not only are students receiving world-class training, they also have access to leading research and industry contacts through our Centre for Business, Climate Change and Sustainability."
Since its launch in 2010 the Masters in Carbon Finance has seen more than 250 students graduate. These students have gone on to work for private companies, public sector, and NGOs in carbon trading, consultancy, and management across the world.
