The MCC program was the first of its kind in North America when established in 2013. To date there have been 8 program cohorts and over 122 students to complete the degree. Through the MCC program, students have the opportunity to work with professors that have contributed to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) assessments and collaborated with a number of United Nations agencies and a wide range of governmental, non-governmental and businesses on climate change research and decision-making. Many of the MCC alumni are now working in climate change-related fields, such as Energy and sustainability analyst, Environmental protection agent, sustainability coordinator, climate adaptation and environment specialist and more. The GDIP in CRM was established in 2018. The program is successfully supporting mid-career professionals in advancing and developing competency in climate science, risk, and opportunities.
