MSc Applied Meteorology and Climate with Management (MSc AMCM)

Applied Meteorology and Climate with Management Full-time (1 year)

This programme is designed to meet the needs of people working in National Weather Services who wish to develop further knowledge in meteorological science and management.

It combines the majority of the meteorological and climate science modules of the Applied Meteorology programme with training in the management of individuals and organisations provided by Henley Business School, part of the University of Reading. Additionally, it involves an optional one week's training in the use of the UK Met Office's ‘PRECIS’ software for climate prediction.

Each year The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) provides a number of fellowships for students on the AMCM programme, although students funded by other organisations or who are self-funded are also welcome to enrol.
