I have done a lot of research on this specific field.
Unfortunately there is not much you can find in Europe.
University of Amsterdam used to have great MBA program concentrating on Sustainability. But it got shut down because of lack of government funds. They made it into a track of their MBA program, which much more expensive.
Other than that, University of Twente in Netherlands and Freiberg University in Germany have unique Environmental Management MBA programs, which have a respectable reputations.

Environmental management really is a neglected field.
I was looking for MBA with the research function of this wesite, and found mainly US program, and nothing in Europe.
Thanks for your comments!

What is your opinion about doing a general MBA in order to work in environmental management?

I intend to work in a management position in a multinational company working in the field of environmental and risk management. Therefore I'm not so sure yet if a general MBA might be more adequate for me.

Can I ask you what is your profile, where did you study?

The program at the University of Twente looks very interesting, although I have the impression it targets more students who want to work in an NGO.

But I'm confused, in the index it says "Environmental and Energy Management MBA". But once on the program site they only talk about a "Master of Science (MSc)".
Do you know more? It's quite a difference, and I'm not interested in doing a MSc, but an MBA.

Thanks in advance.

I've tried to find the MBA at Freiburg University, which you mention, but I couldn't find anything. They probably stopped it as well?
There seems to be no need in Europe for an MBA in environmental management or similar ;-(

Ok, sorry for the misunderstanding. I was not aware of a Freiberg university. Do you happen to know the web address of the MBA in environmental management? Thanks
