Students successfully fulfilling all the requirements are awarded the Master of Science degree in Environmental Sciences, Policy and Management. The MESPOM degree is a valid national degree in Sweden and the UK. The CEU degree is accredited in Hungary, validated by the University of Manchester. In addition, it is registered in the USA by the New York State Board of University Regents in the United States.
The Board of Regents of the New York State Education Department/New York State University has registered MESPOM as a Master of Science (M.S.) programme. The registration was initiated by CEU and involved a thorough review of the MESPOM programme including seeking opinion of independent academics from the USA. The MESPOM Programme is now formally recognized not only in the UK, Sweden and Greece, but also in the United States.
The MESPOM degree is a joint degree with three degree certificates. Practically it means that MESPOM graduates receive three degree certificates (from the University of Lund, University of Manchester and Central European University) cross-referring to each other as well as a set of joint degree award documents.
MESPOM is a fully accredited program in Hungary since 2011. Students are granted a full-fledged Hungarian diploma since 2014.
