MSc in Climate Change Finance and Investment
The Business School runs an MSc in Climate Change Finance and Investment. It was established a decade ago under the title MSc in Carbon Finance and is one of the first such programmes established in business schools globally. Many Centre members teach on this flagship programme.
Alumni of the programme hold positions in many global organisations, including:
- Bloomberg New Energy Finance
- China Emissions Exchange
- CITIC Securities
- Green Climate Fund
- UNDP (United Nations Development Programme)
Centre members have extensive executive education experience, developing open and bespoke training programmes. Open programmes which run periodically include the Advanced Sustainability Masterclass, led by Professor Kenneth Amaeshi, and the Climate Change Risk in Finance Programme, led by Luca Taschini.
In addition to the dedicated MSc in Climate Change Finance and Investment, members of the Centre teach relevant courses across almost all the degree programmes offered by the Business School.
At undergraduate level, we have taken the lead on designing and teaching the first-year course 'Global Challenges for Business' to the entire 350-student intake, which recently won a global education award from the Aspen Institute. Elective courses are also offered in later undergraduate years.
On the MBA programme, Centre members are key faculty on the Strategic Leadership course, and offer the Business Strategy for Environmentally Suitable Futures elective.
Sustainability and societal transformation topics feature heavily in the MSc in International Business and Emerging Markets, and Centre members offer courses to all other MSc students.
