As the world moves towards globalisation at a swifter pace than ever, issues pertaining to global climate change are increasing at an alarming rate. Owing to the superfluous exploitation of natural resources by big businesses and technological advances that expedite the processes for such exploitation, climate change has increasingly been a concern for scientists around the world for the past decades. Most countries around the world agree with this fact and are working towards achieving sustainable means of energy. Some have even vowed to curb their greenhouse gas emissions by inculcating responsible citizen behaviour and penalising organisations that disregard any such guidelines and harm the environment. The greenhouse gases emitted by human activity trap the sun’s heat in our atmosphere and stop it from leaking back into space. Thus, controlling the emission of greenhouse gases has become one of the most essential tasks for governments and NGOs all over the world. One of the most concerning fact is that the current global average temperature is 0.85ºC higher than it was in the late 19th century. This means that the social, economic, political and technological implications of this environmental degradation are tremendous and ever-increasing.

Increasing tensions over climate have led many institutes around the world to provide education inculcating sustainability in their curriculum. But if you feel passionate about the issues around global warming and climate change, it is highly advisable to pursue a degree that directly addresses the subject. You can learn a great deal about management of environmental resources at a specialised Institute for energy and environment.

So how does an MBA enable you to contribute towards this worldwide issue?

At SIIB, you can apply for an MBA in Energy and Environment. This course has been designed in such a way that it imparts knowledge of general management, at the same time encompassing several sustainability-oriented sectors namely power, renewable energy, energy efficiency, oil and gas, climate change and sustainable development, green buildings, corporate sustainability, global standards and environmental management. This MBA in Pune would give you a comprehensive, detailed understanding of human activity and their effects and how to contribute towards a better future as individuals and organisations.

To sum it up, we highly recommend anyone enthusiastic about climate change to consider doing an MBA in Energy and Environment and wish you good luck for your future career.
