About the course
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 Executive Master of Management in Energy lasts for 18 months, including five two-week modules in Paris and Oslo. 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.
