Flexible learning

Our blended learning approach has been designed to meet the needs of students who are studying whilst working. It guarantees maximum flexibility in time management: each student decides when, where and how to learn. The only fixed dates are one examination date per module, with 13 modules to complete over four semesters, and a fifth semester focused on a Master’s thesis.

Blended learning combines self-study, live lectures, interactive group work and optional on-campus time in Berlin, Germany. Students study all modules online – only the oral Master’s examination has to be taken in Berlin, face-to-face with the board of examiners. In the second and fourth semesters we offer our students the opportunity to attend 2 weeks of classes on campus to deepen their technological know-how.

Career prospects and international network

Our programme develops leaders with the interdisciplinary skills and insight for a successful career in renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies.

The Foundation for International Business Administration Accreditation (FIBAA) highlighted that “the content of the programme and the reachable learning outcomes are such that the students achieve employability above average”.

As a student you will benefit from your fellow students coming from all over the world, exchanging know-how and experience as a member of international teams. Within your case-based project work, you will become aware of the international dimension of climate change as a global challenge and learn how to systematically tackle complex economic, framework and technological issues in this field. The student and alumni network encourages the exchange of experience on professional issues, including job opportunities, and the development of joint ideas or projects.
