Environmental Management and Consultancy MA
Whether it is the boardrooms of multinational corporations or the offices of small enterprises the environment is now a fundamental part of decision making. In an increasingly complex and competitive business environment, managers need to understand the commercial opportunities that the environmental sector offers, as well as the standards of performance which customers, shareholders and regulatory agencies now expect.
The MA in Environmental Management and Consultancy prepares you for these challenges. It will develop your skills in decision making, specialist environmental knowledge, and the ability to solve problems in real-world situations.
There are core modules in environmental management and environmental auditing and a wide range of optional modules. A core module in environmental law is provided by the internationally renowned Lancaster University Law School.
