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.

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.
Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...
Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.
"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...
The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.
Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...
The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...
Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.
Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
