Best Masters in Energy Sciences in Germany 2017. A programme designed to develop your comprehensive understanding of key energy issues and improve your analytical and managerial skills. Empowering managers to recharge the energy industry Faster than ever before economic and political changes ripple through the energy business environment. Within this changing landscape, successful energy managers need a bird's eye view of the entire energy value chain. Leaders must understand the interests and constraints of multiple stakeholders – governments, partners, companies and contractors, capital markets, NGOs - as they navigate in the constantly evolving global energy map for both fossile fuels and for the renewables. The global focus of the industry reflects the structure of this programme. This is done by combining Norway’s world class management knowledge in energy governance and business in oil, gas and electricity sectors, with France’s leading energy technology knowledge. The Executive Master of Management in Energy has brought together the expertise of two leading institutions in the field of energy management. The collaborative effort between BI Norwegian Business School in Oslo/Stavanger and IFP School in Paris has given participants a global and strategic perspective on the energy industry. The programme is currently being redesigned to adapt to the changes in the energy markets. This means that the programme will be offered first in 2017. An alternative Energy programme offered at BI Norwegian Business School The Executive MBA Programme with specialization in energy, will be run as planned in 2016. Start up is 31st March. If you are interested in considering the programme, we will be pleased to give you more information and answer your questions. Do not hesitate to contact us at: energy@bi.no. [-]

Master in International Energy

Sciences Po
Campus Full time 2 years

Energy warrants a cross-discipline, cross-sector study as its supply and use is centre-stage of heated political debate at all levels, in relation to economic growth, sustainable development, stability of financial markets, climate change, security, or technological solutions. [+]

Master in International Energy General Objectives Energy warrants a cross-discipline, cross-sector study as its supply and use is centre-stage of heated political debate at all levels, in relation to economic growth, sustainable development, stability of financial markets, climate change, security, or technological solutions. Energy supply is and will remain a major development challenge for developing and developed countries alike. PSIA's International Energy program responds rigorously to a growing worldwide demand in energy expertise, with a cutting-edge curriculum, internship program, and active series of public lectures and events with industry and government leaders. Graduates enter the global job market with a strong international outlook and an incomparable understanding of complex interrelations between different issues, actors and technological solutions. Scientific Advisor Giacomo Luciani is the Scientific Advisor of the Master in International Energy. He is also a Princeton University Global Scholar; Visiting Professor at PSIA and at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva. Giacomo Luciani founded and directed the Institute for Research on International Economics. His research interests include Political economy of the Middle East and North Africa and Geopolitics of energy. His work has focused primarily on the economic and political dynamics of rentier states and issues of development in the GCC countries. Professor Giacomo Luciani teaches a Sciences Po MOOC entitled "Politics and Economics of International Energy". Main orientations and specific features In short, energy supply and use will remain at the center of the political debate internationally as well as nationally. 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. [-]

Master in Global Energy Transition and Governance Nice--Berlin

Centre international de formation européenne (CIFE)
Campus Full time 1 year October 2017 Germany Berlin

A unique graduate programme in Global Energy transition and Governance. Anglophone, takes place in Nice and Berlin [+]

Best Masters in Energy Sciences in Germany 2017. The Master in Global Energy Transition and Governance is targeted at students who have completed their undergraduate studies. Its objective is to give a deep understanding of the complexity of the current energy transformations in Europe and worldwide. The programme takes place in Berlin and Nice. The programme offers a unique, multidisciplinary approach which distinguishes it from other Master’s courses in the field of energy studies: It analyses the links between the different levels of energy governance, from an international to a local level, offering problem-focused learning at the crossroads of theory and practice. The one-year programme stretches over four terms and takes place in two study locations: Nice and Berlin Students who successfully complete the programme acquire 90 ECTS credits. The programme is structured into four terms: The first term (October-December) in Nice encompasses classes on the basics of the four energy modules: International energy governance, Economic energy governance, the EU energy governance and Energy and territories. Each module is complemented by seminars dealing with current energy issues. An academic or professional expert is invited for each event. For their second term (January-March) students move on to Berlin where teaching in the four modules continues in the form of workshops. Each module organises a half-day workshop with an expert. Students prepare the workshops in group work delivering papers on themes linked to the topic of the seminar (climate negotiations, energy stock exchange, the role of the EU interconnections in the European energy market, the EU funds and the territorial energy policy). To better understand the local energy challenges in the framework of the German Energy Transition Field, visits will also be organised in co-operation with local institutions and companies. Another focus of this term will be put on the methodology classes, one dedicated to the research work and the Master’s thesis, the second one to project management. In April students return to Nice. The third term (April-June) aims at deepening their knowledge on the four energy modules. A special focus is also given to the methodological support for the students’ work on their thesis including individual meetings with the academic supervisors. In the two simulations the participants will forge their negotiation techniques with regard to the construction of wind farms at local level and work out of a strategy for an international energy cooperation. Written and oral exams in June will conclude this term. From July to August students will work on their Master’s thesis. All along the summer, supervisors will be at their disposal to follow up their work. The defence of the students’ Master’s thesis will take place in Nice in mid-September.
