The Master in Energy, Natural Resources and the Environment (ENE) is one of the specialisations within the two-year Master of Science (MSc) programme in Economics and Business Administration at NHH.
The prosperity of both current and future societies is utterly dependent upon having secure access to reliable sources of energy and natural resources. Whilst there are often significant technical barriers to overcome in finding, extracting and transforming these resources into useful products for human consumption, the ability to do so effectively may ultimately be determined within economic and business constraints. To complicate matters, exploitation of resources for human consumption will always entail some impact on the environment. With concerns over ecosystems and the global climate becoming more pronounced, the balance between economic development and preserving the natural environment is increasingly a critical factor in a world defined by more than just the bottom line. With these thoughts in mind, and aiming to build on proven capacities in relevant fields, NHH established the MSc specialisation in Energy, Natural Resources and the Environment in 2008.
The goal of the ENE programme is to educate the next generation of interdisciplinary managers in the study of energy and natural resource development and environmental impact. Students are specifically taught the range of methods and subjects necessary to understand, advance, and critique important issues stemming from the interaction of humans and the natural environment.
Through topical clusters and independent projects, the curriculum provides an opportunity to extend and deepen the areas of investigation and understanding to satisfy the intellectual interests of each student.
The programme broadly focuses on four main subject areas:
- Economic fundamentals of energy and natural resource value chains - Business/government interactions in commercial energy and natural resource development - Strategic responses to more competitive energy and natural resource markets - Environmental impact of business and government decisions
Flexible Programme Structure
The ENE programme has the following general structure; it consists of twelve courses and a thesis, adding up to a total of 120 ECTS credits. Students select six courses within the ENE specialication as their major. By selecting three of the remaining six courses from one of the other specialisations offered by NHH, students will build a minor concentration. This gives you an in-depth understanding of a second field in addition to your major. The combination of a major and a minor provides the students with a broader perspective and an expertise that will give them an advantage in the job market. Normally one would follow courses in three semesters and dedicate the final semester to the thesis. The programme is fully taught in English.
The school is the Norwegian member of the prestigious CEMS network (The Global Alliance in Management Education). CEMS offers the CEMS Master's in International Management (MIM), the most international and culturally diverse MSc in the market and ranked as one of the best in the world by Financial Times since the ranking began in 2005.
The Double Degree programme is a cooperation between NHH and other highly renowned institutions, like HEC Paris in France and Richard Ivey School of Business in Canada. After completion of the programme you will be awarded a master degree from both NHH and the partner institution. Furthermore, NHH participates in exchange programs with more than 130 institutions in over 40 countries.
The most recent survey shows that approximately three out of four NHH students find employment before graduation, and the majority of all 2014 graduates have a salary between 50-60.000 EURO.
"Energy, Natural Resources and the Environment (ENE) is a unique specialisation that gives you an in-depth understanding of how the economy works in the energy sector. NHH has strong ties to the energy industry and is one of few schools in the world that offer this kind of specialisation."
