MSc in Carbon Management



With carbon management becoming increasingly central to business, governments and consumers across the world Dave Reay of 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 the climate 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 top 10 Best Masters in the World for 'Sustainable Development and Environmental Management'

Now in its tenth year (2017-18) the programme has seen more than 300 'Carbon Masters' graduate and has this year attracted another great cohort, drawn from all over the world and representing a wealth of experience and different academic backgrounds. Applications for study on the programme for the 2017-18 academic year are still open.


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 2017-2018.
