Masters Programs in Sustainable Economic Studies

Compare 45 Masters Programs in Sustainable Economic Studies

A master degree is an advanced program for students who have already completed an undergraduate degree. These programs typically require an additional two years of full time study. Before graduating, students must demonstrate competency with the material by completing an original research project.

So, what is a Master in Sustainable Economic Studies? It is a high-level business degree program that focuses on sustainable practices. These programs typically include many of the standard business organization courses, but the focus is on newer strategies that do not cause as much harm to the environment. Students may learn how to manage a business or department while also navigating the increasingly complex regulatory environment. Courses typically include standard accounting, finance, and operations topics as well as green energy and manufacturing methods.

A graduate of a sustainable economic studies program often gains better communication and leadership capabilities. They may learn project management skills and how to find ways to make processes more efficient. Their understanding of new sustainable methods of manufacturing and transportation can help them to adapt older business models to the modern age.

Costs for these programs vary. The admissions departments of universities have information related to tuition and fees. Students should also budget for two years of living and transportation expenses while enrolled.

Professionals with one of these degrees are qualified to work in the manufacturing sector as operations managers and cost analysts. Some take jobs in transportation and help to find new ways to streamline the delivery of products to end consumers. Green technology firms hire these experts for business development careers. Those that enjoy their independence may find rewarding work as consultants or as small business owners.

Online programs offer flexible formats that work well for international students and working professionals. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
