Creation of a single European energy market remains a major challenge for the Union, and has profound consequences on its external relations. Energy policies need to be adopted at the national and subnational level, and be coordinated internationally. Career opportunities Governments, financial institutions, policy studies, think tanks and the media seek professionals with sufficient technical knowledge of energy issues to raise the debate. Energy companies, increasingly numerous and diverse, need public policy experts to advise on political and social acceptability of technological solutions and business strategies. Career openings include private enterprises, research institutes, international organizations, banks, consulting and multinational firms. [-]

ENERPO: The key to understanding international affairs in the 21st century Competition and cooperation over the control of Eurasian natural resources will profoundly influence world politics in the 21st century. Crucial issues include the future of the Russo-European oil & gas trade, Russia’s “energy pivot” to Asia, the recent the LNG and shale gas “revolutions”, the recurring geopolitical crises in the post-Soviet space and the Middle East, the great opportunities and the huge profits generated by the energy sector, the use of “energy weapons” and levers, and the pursuit of environmental and economical sustainability, the sanctions regimes on Russia and Iran, and the current falling world price of oil. The ENERPO program is designed to meet the growing interest in these challenges, and considers the importance of these issues for both policy makers and the energy business. Its innovative curriculum combines the perspectives of energy politics, security studies, and political economy, legal studies and is complemented by first hand expertise in the Eurasian energy sector from experts featured in the ENERPO Workshop Series. Also, once a year, some of the world’s leading experts are hosted at a yearly conference hosted by the university where students get front row seats and can ask questions. ENERPO is the only English-language MA program in Russia that focuses specifically on Eurasian energy affairs, thus making it a unique program in both the Russian and international academic landscape. Developing energy expertise and building international “energy bridges” ENERPO develops the expertise of well-rounded “energy bridge-builders and diplomats” in a broad sense, as its students have the opportunity to study energy international relations in the most open, independent and cosmopolitan academic environment in Russia—the European University at St. Petersburg (EUSP).
