With carbon management becoming increasingly central to business,
governments and consumers across the world Dave Reay of GHGonline.org
and colleagues at the University of Edinburgh launched a new MSc
in Carbon Management in 2008. Our first cohort of 38 Carbon
Masters graduated in 2009, having completed a great year for us
all, including presentations to the Scottish Parliament and the
launch of their own carbon consultancy called' 'Carbon Masters'.
Since the inaugural year (2008-09) the programme intake has grown
to 30-50 Carbon Masters each year and has gone from strength to
strength. In December 2009 the Carbon Masters were delegates at
change conference in Copenhagen and received a standing
ovation for their presentations alongside the Scottish Government
and the British Council.
In 2010 the programme won the EUSA PwC Award for 'Teaching Employable
Skills' and in 2015 was ranked in the top
10 Best Masters in the World for 'Sustainable Development
and Environmental Management'
Now in its seventh year (2014-15) the programme has seen more
than 200 'Carbon Masters' graduate and has this year attracted
another great cohort, drawn from 17 nations and representing a
wealth of experience and different academic backgrounds. Applications
for study on the programme for the 2015-16 academic year are now
The Masters programme is run jointly by the School of Geosciences,
School of Economics and Business School at the Universityof Edinburgh
. Applications are now being accepted for 2015-2016. Visit the
