The demand for highly-skilled conservation experts is growing. The international master programme ‚Management of Conservation Areas‘ promotes biodiversity conservation and regional sustainable development in Europe and worldwide by educating and training (future) managers of conservation areas.
Graduates work as managers of conservation areas, national parks, biosphere reserves or world heritage sites. They develop and support community-managed sites and indigenous protected areas or shape the future of international organisations. Graduates may also work in the consulting, planning and scientific sector.
The master programme is part of the UNESCO Chair for the Sustainable Management of Conservation Areas (MCA).
The Carinthia University of Applied Sciences and E.C.O. Institute of Ecology currently hold online info sessions about the programme.
