    Program Content:

    Strategic, problem-solving management decisions in the energy industry require a profound understanding of both general business functions as well as the sector’s specific operational, technical, financial, legal, and entrepreneurial peculiarities. Future leaders in the field additionally need to incorporate a profound cultural understanding as well as an international outlook.

    The interdisciplinary content of the 'MBA Energy Management' covers all managerial aspects relevant to energy markets. This approach gives students and future managers a distinctive profile and qualifies them for leading positions in the field.

    The first semester covers the technical, economic, administrative and legal foundations as a basis for management decisions in the energy sector; the second semester deepens this view and looks at business and managerial practices; the third semester broadens the view while simultaneously focusing on training according to student’s individual interests through elective courses and an individual master thesis.
