Innovation, Enterprise and Circular Economy PG Cert

We offer the world’s first and only Postgraduate Certificate focused on the Circular Economy.

This new economic model aims to:

Use resources and energy more effectively

Reuse products and materials

Deliver increased profit for organisations

As a student you’ll have a unique qualification and first-mover advantage, opening up a range of new career opportunities.

This Postgraduate Certificate sits as a separate award within the Innovation, Enterprise and Circular Economy distance-learning MBA programme. It is designed for those who wish to solely focus on Circular Economy without the additional MBA elements. You can however convert to the MBA at a later date, subject to the approval of the programme director.

The curriculum has been developed in partnership with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation. You’ll study topics including:

Regenerative product design

New business models

Reverse logistics

Materials, resources, energy and competitiveness

Operations, marketing and strategic management

The programme is studied part-time through distance-learning, using a combination of self-study, online teaching and group discussions. This flexibility means that you can fit your learning around your work and home commitments, and complete the programme at a pace to suit you in anything from 9 months to six years.
