Sustainable development is a principal goal and a key policy feature of many of the major institutes and governments of the world. A key element of achieving sustainable development is the balance of Environmental, Economic and Social development drivers. This course will take an integrated view of environmental management within a business context and will provide the specialist interdisciplinary training that is required to fully integrate sustainable development objectives into businesses management. By integrating modules from Bangor Business School and The School of Environment, Natural Resources and Geography, it will train students to be sophisticated environmental managers who can interpret legislative and audit requirements and deliver them in a manner conducive to continued economic development. The programme includes highly topical case studies from across these sectors reflecting changing strategies and alternative approaches.
Graduates from this course have gained employment in private and public sector organisations, NGOs and academic institutions both in the EU and overseas, as well as becoming self-employed consultants in Environmental and Business Management.
Entry to the course normally requires at least a 2(ii) degree in a relevant subject, e.g. Environmental Science or Business Studies from a university, or a similar qualification from any other institution. Alternatively, possession of a suitable professional qualification and relevant practical experience may also be accepted. In general, however, applicants are judged on their individual merits and age, work experience and other factors are also considered.
English language requirements: IELTS 6.0 (with no element below 5.5).
