Environmental Management is a discipline that deals with the regulation and protection of the planet by promoting human behaviours that impact the environment positively. It ensures the execution of the environmental policies, which are formulated from an ecological as well as an economic perspective that is required to sustain the planet. Environmental Management is an umbrella term that also includes maintaining and sustaining the resources of our environment for the generations to come. This program is usually offered at the postgraduate level and focuses on the relation between science, policy, and management.

It is a colossal field that also incorporates the prevention of environmental hazards and disasters that impact anthropogenic existence. Environmental Management takes as its concern all the impacts that arise out of the interaction between human society and the natural world. A deeper understanding of the natural environment and maintaining a fine balance between the human world and nature is the requisite of the era given the rapid global climatic changes and the depletion of essential resources. Therefore, this subject area provides several areas of specialisation and employment options. Environmental Management students develop useful skills like critical and analytical thinking, problem-solving, research, and decision making.
