Message from the Program Co-Director
Welcome to the Environmental Management and Technology Program (EVMT) website! The world today is at a critical turning point in terms of the environmental problems we are facing. Governments need to take action while businesses in Hong Kong, Mainland China and beyond must now look beyond corporate social responsibility for the answer to true sustainable economic growth.
To do so successfully will require environmental managers with a special combination of skills, insight and drive. They will need to be able to take scientific and technological concepts and translate them into corporate action that can fulfill regulatory and community needs along with business goals. These are the new professionals that the innovative interdisciplinary EVMT Program seeks to provide.
We are looking for outstanding young individuals with strong academic credentials, the ability to communicate ideas, and the dynamism to want to make a sustainable difference to a range of organizations. Whether currently science or arts-based, our environmental leaders of tomorrow will develop the technological and management skills and practice-based insight to play a significant role in the evolution to a greener corporate world.
EVMT is a challenging and inspiring program which HKUST, with its globally ranked reputation in business & management, strong research in environmental sciences and inspiring world-class faculty, is uniquely equipped to deliver.
We look forward to you joining us.
