The aim of this program is to develop skills in the delivery of economic activities related to environment, green technology and sustainability. The program includes highly topical case studies from across these sectors reflecting changing strategies and alternative approaches. The course is suitable for graduates in a wide range of disciplines, including Environment, Engineering, Finance, Social Sciences and other subjects.
This is course is also available in part-time basis.
