The curriculum acts as a springboard from which young professionals can enter a dynamic employment market of natural resource management. Graduates can pursue careers in governmental agencies, various environmental agencies (private and public), research, commercial consultancies, municipalities and ideal organisations. Coastal planners and managers need a suitable background to deal with difficult environmental issues emerging from the land-use issues, marine spatial planning, tourism, natural resource use and renewable energy debate.
The market for future professionals is growing with increasing career opportunities for coastal planners, consultants, project leaders, sustainability or CSR coordinators or managers in private sector, environmental officers or environmental inspector in public sectors, both nationally and internationally. Apart from national and regional governments, local authorities, environmental consultancies, utility companies, the construction industry and non-governmental organisations may also provide placement opportunities.
