A once in a lifetime opportunity - Olumide Aborisade, MSc Environmental and Natural Resource Economic s
The Environmental and Natural Resource Economics MSc programme is unique in that it combines a solid foundation in key areas of economics, with specialized field courses.
Our students receive a thorough grounding in macroeconomics, microeconomics and econometrics, alongside an in-depth knowledge of the economics and policy of environmental pollution, renewable and non-renewable resource use, as well as the interaction between globalization and environmental degradation.
In addition, we emphasise the development of the quantitative skills necessary to understand and perform empirical work in economics, with particular attention to the valuation of environmental goods in monetary terms.
During your time studying the Environmental and Natural Resource Economics MSc at Birmingham Business School, you can expect to learn about:
global environmental pollutants and climate change,
emissions trading schemes,
the links between trade and the environment,
