First Online Renewable Energy MBA Program
Online advanced degree programs have become a popular option for busy professionals looking to take their career to the next level. A Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree is one of the best ways to move from corporate peon into a management position. However, balancing family life with a busy work schedule can make time for higher education near impossible. The Beuth University of Applied Sciences Berlin is making it easy now for energy industry professionals to earn an all-new, first of-its-kind, online MBA degree that focuses on renewable energy and energy efficiency.
The “MBA Renewables” covers various aspects of the renewable energy industry and successful business management within the sector. The program covers everything from the technical and economic side of renewable energy, to its legal, political and organizational aspects.
The online distance learning MBA will also provide an overview of the wide range of renewable technologies, their applications and advantages. The complex nature of international renewable energy policies and market characteristics will also be instilled in students, as well as business development skills in what is still considered a relatively young sector.
