The Energy & Society study programme addresses the growing necessity to approach the developments in the field of energy from a combined social, technical and business perspective.


Innovation, climate stress and new business models shape the role of energy within our future society and, as such, within the future business world. It is the interaction between these aspects that creates a unique but complex environment of the energy business. The Energy & Society study programme addresses the growing necessity to approach the developments in the field of energy from a combined social, innovative and business perspective.

Students learn how the interaction between innovation, climate stress and business models impacts the energy business environment and how it shapes the role of energy within our future society and as such the future business world. The Oxford style scenario planning teaches students to explore potential energy futures, cope with uncertainties, and identify important influencing factors. Students gain the overall knowledge and skills required to make justified decisions at management level positions in the energy (related) sector.
