Responding and adapting to climate change will drive trillions of dollars of new investment over the coming decades. Delivering this effectively will require professionals with a deep understanding of the mechanisms that will regulate these new financial flows, such as carbon markets and climate investment funds. With globally acclaimed expertise in carbon management and financial services, anchored in the climate change expertise of the University, the Business School is uniquely positioned to deliver highly qualified carbon finance professionals.
The MSc in Carbon Finance will appeal to graduates with a degree in business, economics, environmental science or a related discipline in the social or physical sciences. Typically students will have work experience and will be wanting to move into a career in the carbon markets or in climate change investment, consulting or related policy and regulatory roles.

The explosion of carbon finance and investment has created a range of new types of business and new professional careers within both new and existing businesses. This has led to the emergence of many new types of career opportunities. Graduates from the MSc in Carbon Finance will typically pursue a career in carbon trading, carbon consulting, SRI investment or asset management, carbon entrepreneurship, climate change policy, or carbon accounting. The programme can also be good preparation for further research at PhD level.
