Why study Economics of Sustainability in Rotterdam?
The reason why we were able to build such a unique master programme is because Erasmus School of Economics has a large faculty of high-level experts, representing a wide set of economic specialisations. By combining their expertise, this faculty will provide you with the knowledge and skills to understand the complexity behind the SDGs.
Furthermore, thanks to the school’s leadership in providing economic expertise to external organisations, the programme will not only include our own academic experts but also experts working in policy development and implementation. Through guest lectures and project collaborations, you will meet representatives of ministries and other government branches, NGOs, and the corporate world who will show you how these complex issues manifest themselves in practice.
