Tailored opportunities: MSc scholarships in Carbon Finance


The challenge of responding and adapting to climate change will drive trillions of dollars of new investment over the coming decades, with major changes required across the global economy, in energy production and consumption, industry, buildings, transport, infrastructure, forests and agriculture. Following the Paris Agreement both developed and developing countries have increased their commitments to addressing climate change, which will require greatly enhanced capacity in all aspects of carbon finance. In addition, the skills and knowledge developed on the programme are highly applicable to the wider fields of environmental finance and environmental accounting.

Graduates will be equipped for a career in low carbon investment, climate/development finance, consulting, research, or related policy and regulatory roles. The programme includes specialist courses in energy finance, climate & environmental policy, carbon & environmental accounting, low carbon & green investment, and carbon markets, as well as a carbon/environmental consulting project and individual dissertation. Courses are taught by leading researchers and practitioners with extensive experience in carbon/climate finance, and students will benefit from interactions with the University of Edinburgh’s other world-leading Masters programmes in Carbon Management and Global Environment and Climate Change Law. The MSc is highly suited to professionals seeking to develop their careers, and also to recent graduates seeking to specialise in this important growth area.
