Overview and Context: why a Master's Degree in Energy Studies (/Energy Management)?

Energy is a major cause of concern for government agencies as well as for economic actors globally. In the wake of the Fukushima disaster, the future of nuclear energy is in question, but what can replace it? Solar, wind, thorium or some yet to be discovered technology? Oil itself - the miraculous energy source of the late 20th century, is widely believed to be peaking. What is the outlook for the next 20 years and what are the implications for private and public organizations alike?

These are some of the critical topics covered in EUCLID's unique online Master in Energy Studies - unique because offered by an international intergovernmental organization committed to sustainable development, and unique for being delivered completely is distance / online format. The EUCLID online master in energy studies is also unique for blending science and technology with economics and finance to offer a comprehensive coverage of this broad topic.

Specific Objectives

This Master's degree program prepares future managers and executives who intend to develop their careers in the global energy industry, both on the private and governmental side of this critical economic factor.

The curriculum was primarily designed to train government staff needing a comprehensive overview of this vast field, but it is also suitable to prepare students and working professionals for careers with governmental bodies, international organizations, and multinational corporations.

Thanks to its low tuition and institutional relationships, it is of special interest to citizens and residents of EUCLID and ECOWAS Participating States.

The EUCLID~M-Energy program is also unique in the sense that it is the only Master’s Degree program dealing with Energy Studies actually offered by an intergovernmental organization, thus allowing direct interaction with practitioners as well as opening rare internship opportunities at diplomatic missions and events.

Admission Requirements

Applicants must have a Bachelor’s degree or its international equivalent, issued by an institution listed in the latest edition of the UNESCO-IAU handbook.

Government-sponsored applicants (who are already government staff) may be admitted without a Bachelor’s degree if their level of education and experience is deemed sufficient. EUCLID may require these participants to complete bridge courses prior to enrolling in the program.

Fluency in English (spoken and written) is required and will be tested.

Students are expected to be in position to dedicate 10 to 15 effective hours of study on a weekly basis.
