Master programs provides the same title for the degree - the Master. Postgraduate studies such as Masters of Science are shortened MSc. The Master of Science in Management program or the Master of Science of Management education are postgraduate programs in common management. This means that students receive an academic education with depth of reflection and abstraction. Masters usually can be classified as Master of Science (MSc) or the popular Master of Arts (MA). The Master of Science (MSc) usually is given for successfully achieving postgraduate programs with a science or technical point of convergence.
Sustainability put into practice could take many different forms, effecting both the individual and the larger community. There are ecovillages and sustainable cities created just for the purpose of minimizing the use of important resources. There are also techniques, such as sustainable architecture, which help promote this ideal.

Who is this programme for?
The use of energy – electricity generation, transportation, heating/cooling and industrial consumption – is the most important driver of climate change by far. Effectively addressing this urgent global challenge, therefore, requires transformational changes in the ways we produce, consume and govern energy. More than two decades of political contestation have shown that a supportive policy environment – meaningful and consistent domestic laws and regulation underpinned by ambitious international treaties – is the only way to affect these changes, develop alternatives to emissions-intensive fossil fuels and transition economies around the world onto a secure, low-carbon and climate-friendly footing....

This shift is leading organisations to recognise the importance of 'Design-Thinking' in business strategy; the need to apply creative capability and advanced innovation in new product, service and business development to achieve competitive advantage.Commisioned by Gordon Brown PM, Sir George Cox, author of The Cox Review of Creativity in Business, notes: “One of the challenges is to get business people, engineers, technologists and designers to understand one another better and to speak the same language.” This programme is all about developing Masters graduates who have a deep knowledge of their core discipline and a broad outlook and confidence in complementary ones so that they become expert interfacers, influencers and innovators.What will this course include?You will work with a multi-disciplinary cohort of students with backgrounds in design, engineering...
