Program Overview

Welcome to our 100% Online MBA in Sustainability, Energy and Environment.

It is widely accepted that sustainability, the environment, and energy economics represent some of the most challenging risks facing businesses today, as well as some of the most exciting opportunities. From climate change, environment to energy economics, the success of business in the future will depend on how companies address these challenges and align themselves with the needs of society and the environment.

The specialized MBA program in “Sustainability, Energy, and Environment” aims at providing skills and tools needed for analyzing, understanding, and assessing strategic decisions about energy production, sustainability, and climate change mitigation. The Program will start by creating a global framework of the energy sources and uses and of the strategic role of energy and sustainable development.  Then, it will focus on the critical challenges in achieving sustainability to meet the energy consumption needs of a growing population in the face of increasing economic prosperity and finite resources. Energy efficiency and the emerging paradigms of energy communities and smart cities will be further investigated. The role of technological innovation and renewable energy production will be assessed providing students with real case studies at the global level. This program also examines the scientific foundation of anthropogenic climate change and the forecast for humans’ impact on Earth’s climate, including sea-level change, variations in precipitation, vegetation, storminess, and the related economic impacts.

After completing this MBA program, graduates are expected to

  • Understand the current status and future trends in energy production and environmental impacts caused by transport, industrial, commercial, and coal power plant.
  • Demonstrate the main sources of renewable energy such as wind, solar, and ocean.
  • Develop practical skills to make major improvements in the efficiency of energy conversion, distribution, and use.
  • Develop the skills to engage in rigorous and complex discussions around creating sustainable solutions in a global context.
  • Understand what is climate and how has climate been varying on human time scales, and why.
  • Emphasize not only the economics of carbon budgeting and increasing efficiency but also the human role in creating and solving climate change.
  • Learn about similarities and differences across the three policy fields: climate, energy, and environment, with the main focus on climate change.
  • Communicate concepts effectively in the energy sector as they relate to environmental issues and demonstrate a thorough understanding of the broader societal consequences of one or more environmental problems and policies.
