View all MSc Programs in Sustainable Economic Studies in Europe 2019
An MSc, or Master of Science, is an academic distinction bestowed upon those who effectively complete a predetermined set of coursework in what is often a science-based discipline. The MSc often enhances career opportunities as well as earning potential.
A program in sustainable economic studies can introduce students to the interconnected relationship between the ecosystem and the economy and can address the environmental concerns of abuse within that relationship. Courses may cover infrastructure and the long-term use of natural resources to support human existence.

Sustainability is more than just a buzzword. Raw materials are one of the fastest depleting resources on Earth. A steady and sustainable supply of many of these materials
Awarded the EIT Label in 2017
Sustainability is more than just a buzzword. Raw materials are one of the fastest depleting resources on Earth. A steady and sustainable supply of many of these materials is vital for a decarbonising society, renewable energy infrastructure, electric mobility but also consumer products and electronics. The outdated make-take-use-dispose model is no longer valid in a world of finite resources. In order to deal with this challenge, three leading European universities cooperated to develop a new Erasmus+ Master programme – the International Master of Science in Sustainable and Innovative Natural Resource Management (SINReM). SINReM was created to educate a new generation of professionals who can engineer technology to reinvent materials science, and gain competence, expertise and confidence in developing solutions in the sustainable use of materials....

The increasing demand for raw materials, their price volatility, the production concentration and the market distortions imposed by some countries, confront Europe and other world regions with a number of challenges along the entire value chain. To tackle this supply risk challenge and to deal with environmental problems arising from too large emissions of waste (such as CO2), technological innovation is required with respect to exploration of new resources and sustainable primary mining, sustainable use of resources in specific products and production processes (e.g. substitution of critical metals in materials), prevention of waste generation, valorisation of secondary (alternative) resources and recovery/recycling of resources from end-of-life products....
The SUMA Master programme aims to train tomorrow’s resource engineers in collaborative work in a global world, gathering together some of the best educational programmes
Awarded the EIT Label in 2016
Materials provide the foundation of the modern global economy. They are becoming increasingly relevant for the shift to a decarbonising society as they enable the transition to renewable energy, electric mobility and resource efficiency, among others. Nevertheless, many materials are becoming critical.
Therefore, we need to develop robust solutions and game-changing technologies that allow for a sustainable stream of materials.
Sustainable Material Solutions with SUMA
The SUMA Master programme aims to train tomorrow’s resource engineers in collaborative work in a global world, gathering together some of the best educational programmes in the field of sustainable materials engineering in Europe. The goal is to ensure young scientists obtain a solid background in chemistry and physics, with competencies for designing and tailoring new material systems for specific functions, and with a specific view to the sustainability of processes and technologies in the field of material development. SUMA puts a particularly strong focus on innovation, entrepreneurship and leadership and takes a holistic approach to the materials paradigm by exploring circular (eco) design, materials substitution, life cycle engineering and circular economy design, materials processing and recycling, manufacturing and innovation....

The Master in Human Settlements addresses rapid urbanization in the developing world and contemporary urban transformations within the scope of sustainable development. The program aims to provide insight into the problems of human settlements as related to rapid change and to the interaction between modernity and tradition, formal and informal city-making.
What are the Human Settlements about?
Architecture, urbanism and spatial planning are the core disciplines of the program. Contributions from economics, geography, and anthropology, among others, complement this core.
In this programme you will learn to identify the challenges of sustainability and view them in a multidisciplinary way, producing solutions, which cover all of the aspect
We all want to build a society which will enable fruitful life also for our children.
As the complexity and urgency of many sustainability problems increase, we can no longer think about our investment needs only as a specific technical product which has a great performance.
In every investment decision, a growing need to contribute more effectively to sustainability challenges has to be taken into account.
Climate warming, weakening air quality, water pollution and waste amounts are examples of sustainability challenges faced around the world today. Sometimes traditional technologies offer the best solutions but also the integration of novel solutions to complex environmental problems are needed....

The sustainable development of mountain regions has to consider economic, ecological and social aspects. Currently, in particular, the environments of the European Alps are facing ecological (e.g. climate change, glacier retreat, hydrological changes) as well as land-use changes (e.g. urbanization, abandonment of mountain agriculture), the latter often driven by socio-economic reasons.
While human activities in the mountain areas should be economically viable and broaden opportunities for local communities in terms of profit and jobs, it also has to match the goal of contributing to improving the degree of conservation and renewal of biotic and abiotic resources at the ecosystem level, which ultimately represent, over time, the essential ingredients of sustainable management....

This specialisation focuses on how financial institutions and organisations can implement sustainability in ways that allow them to reach their strategic goals.
MSc International Business: Sustainable Finance
What duty do financial institutions and corporations have to engage in long-term sustainable development? How can they balance this with the wishes of shareholders, when these are focused on the short term? How can benchmarks on the sustainability performance of investments lead to higher returns? And crucially, how can sustainability challenges be turned into competitive advantages? This specialisation focuses on how financial institutions and organisations can implement sustainability in ways that allow them to reach their strategic goals. You take a multidisciplinary approach – management, corporate strategy, accounting, reporting, marketing and more – to issues such as sustainable banking, investing, real estate and microcredit. You consider how the financial market is organised and how, within this mainstream framework, companies can be more sustainable. How can sustainability profitably be achieved today and in the future? Maastricht University’s School of Business and Economics (SBE) is the world leader in sustainable finance. The Finance Department is internationally recognised for the cutting-edge research it was doing in this field long before it landed on the agenda of America’s Ivy League schools and other European institutions. The department also founded two leading institutes for sustainable finance research: the European Centre for Corporate Engagement (ECCE) and the Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark (GRESB). These institutes collaborate with pension funds, rating agencies, corporations, and regulators to conduct research and develop tools that matter to practitioners. In a nutshell, SBE was the source and remains the hub of this field worldwide. In this...
