The Carinthian University of Applied Sciences has launched an international postgraduate master degree program dealing with these inter- and transdisciplinary challenges. Managers of conservation areas The aim of this program is to promote biodiversity conservation and regional sustainable development in Europe and worldwide by educating and training (future) managers of conservation areas. The MCA program focuses on skills which enable and empower to: - manage conservation areas effectively; - use new ways of communication; - deal with stakeholders in a better way; The duration of the university certificate program is 4 terms (2 years) and 19 courses. The total work load of the program is 120 ECTS. All presence courses are conducted in eight blocks of five to 12 days and therefore allow to combine the training with an upright employment. Hence, substantial components of the training are provided by e-learning. Presence courses will be held in different venues, for instance in seminar facilities of different parks and conservation areas in Central Europe. The final schedule will be announced soon.
