Environment and Resource Management: Global Food Challenges

 

This one-year Master’s programme recognises that environmental problems and sustainability challenges do not stop at national borders. And solutions to those challenges require professionals who have the ability to build bridges and go beyond their own disciplines. Therefore, Environment and Resource Management offers an international and interdisciplinary classroom: the programme is taught in English and is open to students from all academic disciplines and nationalities. It actively teaches you to cooperate in interdisciplinary teams and to contribute your disciplinary knowledge, while looking for possible solutions to specific environmental problems.

 

During the programme, you can determine your own focus by choosing a specialisation. Select from Global Food Challenges, Energy and Climate, Global Water Challenges, or Ecosystem Services and Biodiversity. If you want to broaden your knowledge in all these disciplines, you can opt for the Global Sustainable Futures specialisation. This offers you the option to select your own combination of specialisation courses.

 

Depending on your specialisation, there are many topics you can dive into. For example, former ERM Master’s students answered the following questions in their theses: What role does water play in cross-country migration? (Global Water Challenges). What are the determinants of the uptake of electric cars among citizens of Amsterdam? (Energy and Climate). What is the economic value of healthy ecosystems? (Ecosystem Services and Biodiversity). What is the true cost of meat production? (Global Food Challenges).

 

This Master’s programme aims to ensure that you acquire theoretical concepts, academic skills and operational techniques that allow you to find solutions to the complex problems of our generation.

 

The Environment and Resource Management Master’s programme is organised by the Institute for Environmental Studies (IVM), which is considered to be one of Europe’s leading research institutes in Environmental Sciences. Class sizes are relatively small, allowing a personal and open atmosphere that students enjoy. Institute for Environmental Studies staff members are always available to provide support and guidance.

Environment and Resource Management: Global Food Challenges

There is a growing need for versatile, all-round environmental experts who can analyse and develop solutions for local national and global sustainability challenges.

 

As of today, more than 1,250 students have received their Master’s degree in ERM from VU Amsterdam. Many have embarked on exciting sustainability careers as consultants, NGO leaders, entrepreneurs, ministry officials or international civil servants. Some students continue in academia by starting a PhD.

 

When you graduate, you will be able to determine which assessment tool is applicable in specific situations, and you can critically reflect on the outcomes of such tools. In addition, you should be able to (co-)design effective decision-making processes for complex or ambiguous problems.

 

Graduates may expect to find employment in organisations such as (environmental) consultancies (like KPMG, Arcadis, Royal Haskoning), NGOs (like World Wildlife Fund [WWF], Greenpeace), the private sector (TATA Steel, Philips, Unilever, Nuon, Shell), or the public sector (European Parliament; The World Bank, United Nations Environmental Program, World Health Organisation, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Local water authorities).
