ⓘ Covid-19: Currently, we are offering modules in a hybrid format whenever possible, i.e. in-class teaching with simultaneous online participation for those students who are facing travel restrictions.
Looking forward, the energy market will be more complex. In the years to come, disruption, innovations, and regulations will give rise to numerous changes, which will completely reshape the way (energy) markets work. The transformation of the global energy market will be at the heart of this development.
In the MBA Energy Management you will learn about key global energy issues faced by decision makers and businesses across the globe and you will develop the tools to handle these challenges.
Using international case studies, you will work on assignments with a strong practical orientation. You will work on topics related to supply and demand, the effects of renewable energy forms, and market regulation: Is the oil price crash caused by the coronavirus pandemic good or bad for the industry overall? Which effects on renewable energy can be expected? What adjustments and adaptations should be made to further future-proof the current system? How do regulations influence the market opportunities of start-ups?
The effects and consequences of innovations on the energy market are also explored: How would revolutionizing the development of hydrogen-powered engines affect the booming e-mobility industry? If a technological invention were to reduce the price at which producers offer to sell wind energy, what would that mean for the market? Would more investments in such a technology translate into an increased demand for wind energy? What would that mean for the global market and the positioning of your own enterprise?
The program provides the knowledge and real-world tools needed in the energy sector and has been designed by international energy experts. It offers you some of the top academic and business management minds in the world, combining expert theoretical knowledge with real-world experience in top global companies. Their commitment to excellence is what makes our program so special.
