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.
