Become a Global Environmental Policy Leader

Students of the iMEP program emerge with the skills they need to forge evidence-based environmental policy solutions in the public and private sectors. They will have access to a host of resources including career coaches, workshops, webinars, career fairs, library resources and proprietary job databases. They will also have an opportunity to be paired with a career advisor who is there to share first-hand experiences and offer personalized advice to help them hone professional skills.

Career Opportunities include:

  • Environment Ministry
  • Environmental NGO
  • Sustainability Department in Multinational Company
  • Environment and Energy Consulting Firm
  • Environment and Energy Department in Financial Firm

“Students want skills they can use in their jobs: economics, statistics, program evaluation, policy analysis and science translation that are finely tuned to the environmental policy realm. The interdisciplinary nature of the iMEP program sets it apart to uniquely train a new generation of environmental leaders.”
