If you want to fight for the environment, don't hug a tree; hug an economist! (David Pearce)
In a world of fast population growth and industrialization, economists have developed effective policies to incentivize efficient use of scarce natural resources and reduce environmental damage. The mission of the Department of Environmental Economics and Management is to provide academic training in economics and management with specialization in the areas of environmental, agricultural and natural resource economics. Our program trains applied economists with broad understanding and expertise in the management of systems connected to the natural, life and environmental sciences. Graduates of the department are professionals in a wide variety of occupations and positions in both the private and public sectors, including firms in the capital market, governmental agencies, research centers, consulting companies and academic institutes.
