About the MSc 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 economy, in energy production and consumption, industry, buildings, transport, infrastructure, forests and agriculture. Following the Paris Agreement both developed and developing countries have increased commitments for addressing climate change, which will require greatly enhanced capacity in all aspects of carbon finance.
Graduates will be equipped for a career in low carbon investment, carbon markets, consulting, or related policy and regulatory roles. The programme includes specialist courses in energy finance, carbon markets, climate science and policy, carbon accounting and low carbon investment, as well as a carbon consulting project and individual dissertation. Courses are taught by leading researchers and practitioners with extensive experience of energy, carbon and financial markets, 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 to graduates seeking in specialise in this important growth area.
