Master in Regional and Environmental Economics


The programme aims to train experts in environmental and regional economics, competent in analysing regional and sustainability-related problems, and propose novel solutions by putting their theoretical knowledge and acquired expertise to practice. Regional economics and management aspects of sustainability are important parts of the programme as well. Courses are highly workshop-oriented, where students may work together to focus local and regional aspects of actual global sustainability challenges.

Our experts will be capable of creatively and innovatively contribute to sustainability and regional policy-making, strategic planning and project programming, both in governments and in private enterprises.
