MESPOM students and alumni come from over 80 countries of five continents. A typical MESPOM student has graduated with top grades from a good university and has some experience of voluntary or professional environmental work. She or he understands global environmental challenges and has a clear commitment to contribute to their resolution.
A typical MESPOM class is a mix of (a) engineers and natural scientists seeking to work in policy or management positions (about 30-40% of students), (b) students with backgrounds in social sciences and humanities (about 30-40% of students) seeking to learn about scientific and technical aspects of environmental protection and (c) environmental practitionerswho seek to supplement their practical experience with formal knowledge about the environment. By consciously mixing these different categories in one classroom, encouraging their learning from each other and structuring the curriculum in such a way that it enables planning individually tailored careers, MESPOM has contributed to hundreds of successful environmental careers.
The MESPOM Program has attracted students from prestigeous international universities such as Boston, Brown, Leiden, Lund, McGill, McMaster, Moscow State, Peking and Stanford, as well as Universities of Andes (Columbia), Auckland, Canberra, Cape Town, Costa Rica, British Columbia, California (Santa Barbara), Copenhagen, New Delhi, Oxford, Puebla (Mexico), San Marcos (Peru), Sheffield, Toronto and Washington (Seattle), Weseda (Japan) among others.
