The Energy Business Management Course is one of three separate, though mutually linked Master programmes, that can also be joined on a stand-alone basis. The three Master Programmes can be concluded by a Summer Academy and a Thesis project. After completion, you will obtain the title of  Executive Master of Gas Business Management.

At the end of this course, participants will understand: • Many aspects of managing a energy business and the impact of a changing business environment • How to identify the key aspects of positioning the business in a competitive environment • The roles, behaviour and sometimes conflicting aims of market participants including incumbents, new entrants, and regulators.
