About the course

The global focus of the industry is reflected in the structure of this programme.

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.
