Scholarships available on world's first MSc in Carbon Finance

Scholarships available on world's first MSc in Carbon Finance
Applications are invited to join the MSc in Carbon Finance at the University of Edinburgh Business School, for the academic year commencing in September 2011.

Three scholarships, each worth £8,000, have been donated specifically for this programme (in addition to various non-programme-specific scholarships). They are available to applicants from any country who have an excellent academic record and an in-depth interest in the subject area. Applicants must have received and accepted an offer of a place on the programme, and must apply for the scholarship no later than 31 May 2011.

The MSc in Carbon Finance focuses on the business opportunities and financial flows driven by society’s response to climate change. Graduates will be equipped for a career in carbon markets, climate change investment, 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 group-based 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, Carbon Capture and Storage, and Environment and Climate Change Law. Applicants with some work experience are particularly encouraged to apply.
