International Executive Master in Energy Management
A European Programme With a Global Perspective - Few would go up against the view that energy companies and policy makers are facing many significant challenges as we enter a new era. The issues to be addressed are many: can we count on technological breakthroughs to cope with surging energy demand and at the same time handle the long term environmental constraints? What type of regulatory framework is most likely to provide the incentives for the necessary changes to take place? To what extent are nations ready to cooperate in addressing global energy and environmental challenges? Can we be assured that capital markets will provide the tremendous funds needed to develop energy infrastructures and improve energy efficiency?

As a leading European business school, ESCP Europe ought to be involved in shaping the future of the energy industry. The sector has long been segmented into upstream versus downstream, oil and gas versus utilities, resulting in a high degree of specialisation. Today’s managers need to have a broader perspective with an integrated view of the various issues in order to cope with complexity; to have a clear understanding of antagonisms across actors; and to eventually be able to anticipate and design proper sets of actions and strategies. In other words, to enable them to deal effectively with the dramatic changes taking place. This is the driving force behind the Master in Energy Management programme.
Indeed, with five campuses in Europe, and global reach through its many partnerships in the world and network of alumni, ESCP Europe appears to be in a unique position to design and offer such a programme. In particular, by taking advantage of European differences and challenges, we are in a position to enrich the programme content and bring up discussions on crucial issues.
