World’s first Carbon Management MBA launched

09.07.2007
The University of East Anglia is launching the world’s first MBA targeted at leading the business world into the low carbon economy. It will deliver environmentally and competitively sustainable business strategies.

UEA, world-famous for cutting edge climate change research, is pioneering an MBA in Strategic Carbon Management designed to deliver a new type of manager able to lead confidently towards low carbon market opportunities.

The one-year, full-time course is led by UEA’s Norwich Business School and aimed at businesses, entrepreneurs, policy makers, regulators and NGOs. It brings together internationally established research and teaching expertise from a number of other schools within UEA, including the School of Environmental Sciences, the School of Economics and the School of Development Studies.

“The quest for sustainable competitive advantage in a dynamic and complex low carbon economy requires new business tools and a new breed of managers,” said UEA Vice-Chancellor Prof Bill Macmillan. “I am delighted that UEA is exploiting its wealth of expertise in environmental research and business understanding to launch this innovative new programme.”

The new MBA will help managers integrate environmental considerations into their business strategies, while at the same time discovering new market opportunities. The result should be both reduced carbon emissions and improved business performance.

Dr Bob Watson, Chief Scientist at the World Bank, said: “The MBA in Strategic Carbon Management at UEA is timely. This MBA is leading the field alongside innovative companies in demonstrating that being climate friendly is good business. UEA is a world-leading educational institution globally recognised for developing educational curricula needed for tomorrow’s world.”

The MBA (Masters in Business Administration) in Strategic Carbon Management will be formally launched in London later this year. The first intake of students will begin in January 2008.

Im Focus: Attoseconds break into atomic interior

A newly developed laser technology has enabled physicists in the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics (jointly run by LMU Munich and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics) to generate attosecond bursts of high-energy photons of unprecedented intensity. This has made it possible to observe the interaction of multiple photons in a single such pulse with electrons in the inner orbital shell of an atom.

In order to observe the ultrafast electron motion in the inner shells of atoms with short light pulses, the pulses must not only be ultrashort, but very...

Im Focus: Good vibrations feel the force

A group of researchers led by Andrea Cavalleri at the Max Planck Institute for Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) in Hamburg has demonstrated a new method enabling precise measurements of the interatomic forces that hold crystalline solids together. The paper Probing the Interatomic Potential of Solids by Strong-Field Nonlinear Phononics, published online in Nature, explains how a terahertz-frequency laser pulse can drive very large deformations of the crystal.

By measuring the highly unusual atomic trajectories under extreme electromagnetic transients, the MPSD group could reconstruct how rigid the atomic bonds are...

Im Focus: Developing reliable quantum computers

International research team makes important step on the path to solving certification problems

Quantum computers may one day solve algorithmic problems which even the biggest supercomputers today can’t manage. But how do you test a quantum computer to...

Im Focus: In best circles: First integrated circuit from self-assembled polymer

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.

In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...

Im Focus: Demonstration of a single molecule piezoelectric effect

Breakthrough provides a new concept of the design of molecular motors, sensors and electricity generators at nanoscale
