  • manufacturing

  • utilities or grid operators

Flexible learning

MBA Renewables is a distance learning degree; all modules are studied online, only the oral Master's examination has to be taken in Berlin, face-to-face with the board of examiners (compulsory). In the second semester we offer our students the opportunity to attend 2 weeks classes on-campus at RENAC in Berlin in order to deepen their technological know-how.

The programme follows a blended learning approach, allowing you to decide when, where and how you prefer to learn. The educational services offered include:

  • materials for self-study
  • online lectures
  • video podcasts
  • exercises for monitoring the learning process
  • virtual working groups
  • course forums and chat rooms

This secures maximum flexibility and studying at ones own pace for the whole period of study (only examination dates are fixed). As a student you also benefit from your fellow students from all over the world: through interdisciplinary teams exchanging know-how and experience using our learning platform and web-conference system.
