The Environment and Business programme combines the study of environmental and sustainability issues with sound business and management practice. It is concerned with the pressures and opportunities facing business as a result of the contemporary environmental and corporate social responsibility agendas.

The programme is ideal for students who wish to develop skills in the use of concepts, methods and tools that can be used to transform economic, environmental and social pressures into positive business opportunities. It will suit students whose background is in business, geography or other social sciences, and who have an interest in improving the management of the environment-society-business interface, with a view to both competitive advantage and sustainability. At Leeds, we recognise the increasing importance of employability issues for our undergraduates, so we provide dedicated pathways that enable you to develop specialist knowledge and skills in order to maximise your success in the employment market.
