Worldwide economic growth is rapid and as a result there is an urgent global need for management practices that balance economic demands with sustainability.

Businesses, non-government organizations and the public sector are increasingly incorporating these practices into their planning. Managers who understand them will be at the forefront in guiding the world towards sustainable businesses, communities and environments.

Thompson Rivers University's new master's degrees in environmental economics and management, launching in September 2017, will prepare graduates to make major contributions to the field of economic sustainable management.
