Sustainable Finance Course 2017

We are inviting applications for our Sustainable Finance Course in 2017. The course was successfully piloted in 2016 and is designed as an introduction to sustainable finance for current and future leaders working in policy, regulation, civil society, and investment.

The course is designed for those working in a range of sectors, for example: staff at environmental NGOs who would like to help the global financial system create better environmental outcomes; civil servants and regulators working to develop policies that can foster the development of sustainable finance; executives working in financial institutions that need an introduction to sustainability, the environment, and climate change as they relate to finance and investment; philanthropic funders looking to navigate sustainable finance topics so as to support the most impactful activities; and trustees or company directors that want to understand how sustainable finance relates to their fiduciary duties.

The course is centred around a four-day residential workshop held at Balliol College of the University of Oxford from Monday 18th to Thursday 21st September 2017. Over the subsequent six to nine months, participants engage in an extended learning project implementing a real-world project related to finance and sustainability. The course is developing a global network of practitioners working at the intersection of finance and the environment.

The course fee is £2,000 per person and includes all teaching costs, en suite accommodation at Balliol College 17-21 September, breakfast, lunch and some dinners, but it does not include the cost of travel to and from Oxford. To apply, please see the Sustainable Finance Course webpage.



Graduate Students

Each year the Oxford Sustainable Finance Programme supervises or co-supervises a small number of University of Oxford graduate students from the School of Geography and the Environment (SoGE). Occasionally we will co-supervise graduate students from other departments at the University of Oxford. We do not directly admit students, so please apply for graduate courses via the SoGE International Graduate School. We also very occasionally hire graduate students as part-time research assistants and provide bursaries where graduate research is directly aligned with our research priorities.

If you are already admitted or enrolled at the University of Oxford, please contact Dr Ben Caldecott, Director of the Sustainable Finance Programme, if you are interested in joining our research team and include an up-to-date CV and statement of suitability in any such expressions of interest.
