Master in Energy, Natural Resources and the Environment
Business challenges in a changing environment
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.... [-]
A programme designed to give you a comprehensive understanding of key energy issues and improve your analytical and managerial skills. [+]
The modern energy landscape is increasingly complex. Economic and political changes ripple through the business environment faster than ever before. Managers in today's energy business can no longer afford to focus solely on their industry segment. They need a bird's eye view of the entire energy value chain. Leaders need to understand the interests and constraints of multiple stakeholders – governments, partners and contractors, capital markets, NGOs - as they try to navigate the constantly evolving global energy map.
The global focus of the programme is ensured by participants and faculty with international experience. The programme includes international courses that give participants exposure to business practices and trends in different environments. You will learn from the experts, in classes taking you from Norway's oil capital Stavanger and Oslo, via UC Berkeley in California, and finally to the highly respected IFP School in Paris.... [-]

Master of Science in Sustainable Management
The main purpose of the programme is to give the students understanding and knowledge about business and sustainability. Particularly, the programme is related to opportunities and challenges organizations experience in relation to societal, environmental and climatic changes as well as competing stakeholder interests in a contemporary society.Sustainability can be defined in different ways. One important perspective relates to considering sustainability from strategic and operational actions of an organization in the light of economic as well as environmental and social impacts. With increasing focus on global climate change and the impact of human economic activity on the environment and nature, growing challenges of social and societal inequality in performing global economic activities, more and more organizations are today increasingly required to demonstrate improved organizational performance in terms of the “triple bottom line”. This should come as the consequence of changing organizational policies and practices focusing on introducing and institutionalizing sustainability considerations, which in turn requires an increasing need for skilled professionals in the field.In this sense, the High North, with it´s wealth of natural resources, represents an pertinent region of study. Economic growth in the region depends on sustainable development and the use of these resources. This development is, however, not risk-free. The eco-system is vulnerable and, some have argued that high petroleum activity in this area may impact the major fishing stocks of Arctic regions. The debate about future exploration and exploitation attracts attention from many stakeholders such as oil companies, fisheries, indigenous populations, the tourism industry, policy makers and NGOs....
