The Graduate Diploma in Climate Risk Assessment and Opportunity is designed to provide opportunities for learners to develop advanced skills in areas of climate risk, in a discipline specific context to prepare learners for impactful careers relating to societal risks and adaptation to climate change. This multidisciplinary program is developed as a joint program between the Faculties of Engineering, Science and Social Science and the Ivey School of Business. The graduate diploma provides a broader multidisciplinary knowledge related to climate risk through one required course and allows learners to develop in-depth knowledge through three courses in one of the four areas of concentration (Engineering, Business, Science and Social Science) enabling them to gain discipline-specific expertise in climate risk assessment, adaptation, and mitigation.
The Graduate Diploma is offered online as part-time studies. Learners at all career stages are encouraged to participate in this program which promotes a proactive approach to climate change and will train individuals to better asses the associated risks and develop solutions to mitigate the impact of this global issue.
