Sustainability and Consultancy

This Sustainability and Consultancy Masters offers a grounding in the broad range of sustainability topics beyond just environmental issues (from project development to corporate sustainability strategy). It will also develop the professional skills required. Sustainability is an integrated issue across our teaching, rather than separating the environmental, economic and social elements. Specialist modules are delivered by academic staff, practising consultants and other practitioners, giving you exposure to real-life, international case studies with a good understanding of contemporary management techniques and solutions. This course aligns closely with the challenges of sustainability and the skills that employers say they need to tackle those challenges, with a strong emphasis on project skills.

Course modules

Modules include: Introduction to Sustainability; Business, Environment and Sustainability; The Regulatory and Planning Context for Sustainable Projects; Standards and Tools for Business, Environment and Corporate Responsibility; Sustainability Consultancy Project; Issues and Cases in Corporate Social Responsibility; Project Management: Developing and Managing Environmental Contracts; Delivering Sustainability Through Projects. Optional modules include: Introduction to Ecological Economics; Environmental Policy and Governance; Climate Change: Physical Science Basis.

You will be assessed through a variety of ways including both written and oral assignments and exams. And through individual and group work.
