Management decisions in the energy sector require profound understanding of the sector’s technical, economic, legal, and entrepreneurial peculiarities. Read more
Management decisions in the energy sector require profound understanding of the sector’s technical, economic, legal, and entrepreneurial peculiarities. Climate change, economic changes, public opinion, technological progress and regulation shape and limit the entrepreneurial leeway, but also offer often unforseen chances and opportunities. The industry therefore requires broadly skilled individuals who are experts in the field.

The master programme is taught over a period of three semesters. The first semester covers the technical, economic, entrepreneurial and legal foundations for management decisions in the energy sector; the second semester deepens this view and looks at business practises, primarily of grid-based utilities, and investment; the third semester broadens the view while simultaneously focusing on practise according to student’s individual interests. All semesters include lectures, tutorials, seminars as well as excursions, online materials related to practice and extracurricular activities. The master thesis due in the third semester concludes the programme.
