IEMA Certificate in Environmental Management
A really though provoking and engaging course delivered by James Wyse. The use of current affairs have really enhanced the learning experience, and allowed me to apply some of the theory to real life scenarios. I have thoroughly enjoyed the topical discussions around morals, ethics and business decisions. Looking forward to week 2.
