Executive Master of Management in Energy

Shape your future with a master’s degree designed to develop your comprehensive understanding of key energy issues.

Empowering managers to recharge the energy industry 

The global focus of the industry is reflected in the structure of this programme. As reference cases we explore the development in Europe and Scandinavia during the last decade, as those regions have been pioneers with respect to new business models and energy market designs. In addition to the fundamentals of oil, gas and the electricity industry, you will gain a deep understanding of the undergoing energy transition.

This is done by combining Norway’s expertise in governance and technology development within the oil, natural gas and electricity sectors, with France’s leading energy technology knowledge. The collaboration between the leading international institutions BI Norwegian Business School and IFP School in Paris, gives this programme a unique profile with an exclusive opportunity to learn from international experts.

Through this programme, you will develop the qualifications you need to lead the ”industrial revolution”, and prepare yourself for the most attractive management positions in the energy industry of today and tomorrow.

"The green transition requires understanding of external forces, company strategies and innovative leadership. The Executive Master of Management in Energy is designed to empower leaders to recharge the industry in a sustainable manner."

Programme content

The Executive Master of Management in Energy lasts for 18 months, including four one-week modules and one two-weeks-module. This structure allows you to undertake executive studies while continuing to work full time.

Energy core courses respond to the significant changes in the industry due to growing demand for energy, sustainable development and green transition across the world. Courses also focus on specific skills in energy fundamentals, technologies, industries and markets, policies and strategies, addressing the challenges of investments and technological solutions.

Through the programme, you will profit from interactive learning processes and discussions on campus and online. You will also participate in a consultancy project, a practical team work exploring real-life business challenges. The project work is supervised by a professor as well as a representative from the company you are analysing.

The following modules will transport you from an overview of the energy market to the key challenges of the future of the industry.

Hybrid Programme Structure

For the students who don't have the opportunity to travel to Oslo, these modules will be offered as a hybrid (live on-campus and online) if necessary. All teaching in the programme has compulsory attendance, both on-line and by physical presence. If a student is missing more than 25% of a course, retake is necessary. 

Who is the programme for?

The truly international, cross-cultural learning environment provides excellent network opportunities. The programme gathers professionals already familiar with the industry, as well as those aspiring to work in the energy field. Your fellow students will represent a wide range of industries and academic backgrounds.

Classes typically have more than 15-20 nationalities represented, and the average age is normally around 37 with 12 years of full-time work experience. Previous students worked for companies such as Aker Solutions, ABB, Conoco Philips, DNV GL, EDF, Engie, Halliburton, McKinsey, REC, Schlumberger, Shell, Siemens, Equinor and Total. And many more, including ministries, regulators, defence and other public authorities.

A global partnership - Learn with the experts

Bringing together the expertise of two leading institutions in the field of energy management, the Executive Master of Management in Energy gives you a global perspective on the industry.
