This multi-disciplinary course provides an in-depth overview of the economics and governance of climate change, and the risks and opportunities they present for a range of organisations.

Virtual 4 week course starting 1 June 2020

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the decision to move the June delivery of this course from on-campus to virtual learning. It will still maintain the same outstanding content but delivered in a new format that enables our participants to learn at a distance. For more information, please visit our dedicated virtual delivery page.

The course begins with an intensive introduction to climate change as a scientific and particularly as a social scientific issue, intended to bring students up-to-speed with the key concepts. The scientific evidence on climate change will be outlined and well-known controversies will be covered. Then the key concepts of climate-change economics and governance will be introduced, such as market failure, pricing carbon, and the tragedy of the commons.

This executive course is suitable for:

  • Senior executives searching for insight into how climate change affects their business
