The Master Program in a Nutshell

The University of Ghana implemented the corporate branch of EMIS within its new program in Sustainability Science starting September 2015.

EMIS elective courses include: process modeling, information systems and corporate environmental management, material flow analysis and management, and sustainability and industrial ecology.

The Sustainability Science program is a research and innovation based program taking into consideration current rapid trends in socio-economic development within the deteriorating environmental context that aptly express the necessity for building capacity in sustainability science in Ghana. The aim of the program is to provide students with core concepts of sustainability science for development through environmental, social and economic disciplines, analyze multi-disciplinary information and data to provide informed decision-making through resource management; understand how practical applications are used to achieve the core concepts in different fields of study; and integrate various sources of knowledge to support the process of achieving these concepts. The program philosophy is very much in line with University of Ghana's vision to develop world-class human resources and capabilities to meet national development needs and global challenges through quality teaching, learning, research and knowledge dissemination.

The trans-disciplinary approach of the program prepares students professionally for a broad range of sustainability-focused careers in industry, government, or the non-profit sector and is therefore open to students from various disciplines.

When and How to Apply?

Applicants should have at least a second class honors degree in an appropriate field of study.
