This new focus includes modules that deal, among other things, with the change process in the energy industry and sustainable business decisions. As a result of the energy transition, the energy industry is undergoing a change process that is tantamount to a paradigm shift. Technologies, political framework conditions, legal requirements, governance concepts, markets and the structures within the industry are all equally affected. The planned focus area "Energy and Sustainability Management" covers this need for competence in the region and beyond.
The focus in this area is on core topics in energy management and the rational use of energy as well as sustainability. For example, you will acquire the ability to create economically and ecologically justified energy concepts, as well as the ability to evaluate and make optimal use of government subsidy systems for the rational use of energy and the use of renewable energy sources. In addition, you will acquire knowledge, skills, and competencies to support the design of energy-related facilities.
Furthermore, the proposed concentration represents an innovative elective option for students in the Department of Business and Economics who wish to combine their business knowledge with technical expertise. Examples of the combination possibilities within the department are courses and projects e.g. of technical sales. Depending on your interests/skills, you can take technical-, economics-, legal-, financial-, or trade-oriented elective modules in the concentration.
All seven elective courses in the concentration uniformly aim to combine business administration with technology to an appropriate degree. In this way, you can develop a certain understanding of energy economics in order to successfully distinguish yourself from competitors in an era of ecologically conscious action by companies.
