The IIIEE provides graduate education that equips students with the knowledge, skills and personal qualities needed to become agents of change and future leaders, capable of transforming our economy and society towards sustainability.
In 1995, the IIIEE launched its unique Master’s programme in Environmental Policy and Management (EMP) to educate professionals committed to and capable of solving global sustainability challenges. More than 700 graduates of the programme from 85 nations are now contributing to sustainable development in industry, government, UN, NGOs, and academia. In 2005, the IIIEE led a consortium to launch the Erasmus Mundus Masters Course in Environmental Sciences, Policy and Management (MESPOM). MESPOM is now delivered in cooperation with 3 European and 2 North American universities, enabling the students to study different aspects of sustainability in different cultural and academic contexts.
IIIEE’s education is interdisciplinary and has a close engagement with real-life practice in the private and public sectors. The international character of our programmes and our outstanding Alumni Network have supported intense learning across national boundaries.
