Course Description

Whether it is the board rooms of multinational corporations or the offices of small enterprises, the environment is now a fundamental part of business decision making. Today?s successful business manager needs to understand the commercial opportunities that the environmental sector offers, as well as the complex regulations which must be complied with and the standards which customers expect. The MA in Environmental Management and Consultancy prepares you for these challenges, enabling you to understand and speak the language of both management and environmental science. Core modules are delivered by the Lancaster Environment Centre (LEC) and students are able to take optional modules in the internationally renowned Lancaster University Management School (LUMS). The taught programme provides a mix of theory and practice, including vocational experience and insights via the enterprise and environment module and the optional work placement module. The programme also includes a 6 month research placement where you will have the opportunity to put your knowledge and skills to the test by working for a small-medium sized company. On graduating, you will have a range of research and commercial skills which are needed for careers in environmental consultancy and the green business sector. Taught modules are Work Placement, Environmental Management and Environmental Auditing and three optional modules from a selection of relevant environmental, geographical, law and management modules. Please note modules are subject to change. Part-time options are available over 24 months. We aim to be as flexible as possible on our part-time schemes, so if you are unsure whether you can fit in your studies around work or family responsibilities visit us at one of our open days or contact us to talk about your needs.
