This course is aimed at people who want to pursue a career in environmental economics and environmental management. It can be taken either as a twelve-month Masters degree or nine-month Diploma. The MSc/Diploma in Environmental Economics and Environmental Management (EEEM) is a specialised programme of advanced interdisciplinary knowledge and skills in the economics and management of natural resources. From the field of ecology, it offers insights into the functioning of ecological systems, and the nature of the ecological feedback mechanisms responding to the economic utilisation of these systems. From the field of environmental economics, it offers insights into the optimal utilisation and management of scarce ecological resources, and the effects of economic activities on the natural environment. As a result students learn how to incorporate environmental feedback into the economic decision-making process in a way that satisfies the goals of both ecological resource managers and resource economists.
