Master Environmental Economics and Policy

The program focuses on environmental issues such as pollution, climate change, energy, natural resource management, protection of habitat and endangered species, etc. Courses cover how government can design public policies such as taxes, emission trading schemes, labels and standards to mitigate the negative impacts from human activities on the environment, or how individuals and firms can change their behavior in a more sustainable way.

In the 1st year, students attend a rigorous academic program in the different economic disciplines and quantitative techniques for social sciences. The common core courses allow them to deepen their knowledge and the elective courses allow students to build up their career projects, taking into account the specializations in the second year of the master’s programs.

In the 2nd year, the master “Environmental Economics and Policy” provides students with a unique set of skills to assess, analyse and recommend economic policies and strategies to tackle environmental issues and manage natural resources. Students can choose a more traditional environmental economics profile (track Environmental Policy and Energy Economics), or one that focuses more on ecology, ecosystems and biodiversity (track Economics and Ecology). The program also offers a broad range of topics of interest to environmental economists such as behavioral economics, animal welfare, and development economics.

This program starts in the academic year 2023-2024 and follows on from the former Masters “Environmental and Natural Resources Economics" (ERNA) and “Economics and Ecology”.
