What We Offer
The role of financial markets in driving the transformation towards a low-carbon climate resilient economy is fundamental to the efficient implementation of global ambitions in the post-Paris Agreement phase. Realising a successful transformation requires thought leaders to understand and critically analyse the key aspects of private capital engagement at various levels and from different sources. One of the Centre’s primary goals is to equip thought leaders with the necessary skills to improve access to clean energy and climate finance in developing and emerging economies – both in the sense of personal advancement and in the wider context, defined as the development of countries.
Our on-site and online programmes help you to systematically and successfully develop your qualifications and to build your career while recognizing the social function of education.
E-learning makes it easy to stay abreast of recent developments in the field and gives you freedom to learn whenever and wherever you want. Based upon on-campus programms and project experiences, our e-learning programme utilises a blend of interactive content, videos, script, case studies and online discussions to explore the science and business responses to climate change. The FS-UNEP Centre provides four online courses focusing on climate and sustainable finance, each resulting in a globally acknowledged certificate.
Our online certification programmes are 6-month part-time trainings, designed to be conducted along full-time work or other obligations. Apart from a few deadlines, the courses follow a very flexible approach, allowing participants to follow their own study schedule. The flexible part-time training concept is implemented through the training platform Frankfurt School Development Finance e-Campus. After successful completion of one of the courses (each 6 ECTS credits), participants will receive a Certificate by Frankfurt School, one of the leading business universities in Europe.
