Sustainable Energy

A master's degree is a postgraduate academic degree. One must already have an undergraduate degree to apply for a master's program. Most master's degree program would require students to complete a master's thesis or research paper.

A Master in Sustainable Energy is an interdisciplinary study of the methods the world must employ in order to fulfill its energy needs. The biggest challenge is how to meet these requirements through the implementation of new law and policy and despite continued, rapid, globalization.

Sweden (Sverige) is the largest of the Nordic countries, with a population of about 9.5 million. It borders Norway and Finland and is connected to Denmark via the bridge of Öresund (Öresundsbron). Sweden has a strong tradition of being an open, yet discreet country.

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. [-]
