MBA Energy Management

ⓘ Covid-19: Currently, we are offering modules in a hybrid format, i.e. in-class teaching with simultaneous online participation for those students who are facing travel restrictions.


Get the skills you need to handle pressing global energy issues

In the future, the energy market will be even more complex than it already is today. In the years to come, disruption, innovations, and regulations will give rise to numerous changes, which will entirely reinvent the way (energy) markets work. The transformation of the global energy market will be at the heart of this development.

In the part-time MBA Energy Management you will learn key global energy issues faced by decision makers and businesses across the globe and you will develop the tools to handle these issues.

Focusing on the right topics in your daily work

Using international case studies, you will work on assignments with a strong practical orientation 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?
