    Advantages & Opportunities

    The program has been developed in close cooperation with leading enterprises, consultancies and regulatory authorities in the energy sector. The study location is the exciting EUREF-Campus where many industry leaders set up office and think tanks. Excursions to industrial outlets and companies further strengthen the link between theory and practise.

    We are part of Technische Universität (TU) Berlin, which is one of Germany’s largest universities with currently more than 30,000 students. TU Berlin offers a wide range of support and extracurricular activities.

    The program’s interdisciplinary content, which covers the political, economic, technical and legal aspects of the energy markets, gives students and future employees a distinctive profile and qualifies them for leading positions in the energy sector. Learning and studying in small groups of up to 30 students allows for individual and excellent learning conditions.

    Subjects for master theses are top-notch research and often based on industry or government proposals. Skills and knowledge transferred in our course are in high demand in all energy related industries, so carreer opportunities for graduates are exceptional.

    Quality Assurance

    Part of sustainability is quality management. Quality should not be left to chance, but be the result of a continuous improvement process. The TU Berlin changed its quality focus from the quality assurance of individual study programs to the evaluation of the university as a system. The TU Berlin has designed its quality assurance procedures in such a way that the participating actors can develop themselves in a responsible manner and in dialogue with each other. System accreditation leads to the accreditation of all study programs offered by a university.
    “The subject of system accreditation is the internal quality assurance system of a university in the field of study and teaching. The structures and processes relevant for teaching and studies are examined to ensure that they achieve the achievement of the qualification objectives and the high quality of the courses, whereby the requirements of the Conference of Ministers of Education (KMK) are the European Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ESG). and the criteria of the Accreditation Council apply.
    A positive system accreditation certifies the university that its quality assurance system in the field of study and teaching is suitable for ensuring the achievement of the qualification objectives and the quality standards of their degree programs. Degree programs that are set up according to the specifications of the accredited system or have already been subject to internal quality assurance according to the specifications of the accredited system are thus accredited.” (Own translation after German Accreditation Council of 20/02/2013.)
    Currently the final phase of the accreditation process has started and receiving the label of the system accreditation by the end of 2019 is possible. Please visit the webpage Central Evaluation and Accreditation Agency ZEvA for more information.

    Also, I have found a great chance to improve my German language skills, thanks to TU’s language school. I definitely recommend the MBL Programme and encourage people to apply for a place, too.Seher Cirak Ates (Turkey), MBL (2015-16)

    Energy Management MBAThe energy sector is a growing and complex area and the European and International Law MBL program at the TU Berlin strives to place energy law in a multidisciplinary and international context. Coming from a legal background, I have enjoyed developing my understanding of the economics of the energy sector. A further strength of the program is its practical focus with many of the lecturers being industry professionals and experts in their respective fields and we have had some interesting excursions to energy companies and energy-efficient power plants. There is a diverse mix of students from around the world with different perspectives on the challenges and opportunities that the energy and renewable sector face.

    The TU EUREF Campus is a great place to study with many different energy and renewable companies and start-ups situated here (and as an added bonus has some nice restaurants!).Kristen Ellerker (Australia), MBL (2015-16)

    Energy Management MBAI chose the master course on European and International Energy Law offered by the Technische Universität Berlin because of its outstanding reputation, highly qualified lecturers, course preference compared to other universities, and proximity to my country, Spain.

    I wanted to combine my interest on European and International Law with Energy Law, specifically renewable energy issues, and I feel that the course successfully merges the two. The course offers an extremely solid base on competition law, regulatory law and economic fundamentals. The general vibe and dynamic structure of the modules is really enjoyable since we are constantly debating and discussing different issues. I loved the International Regulatory Law classes in particular wherein lectures were delivered by professionals practicing in the field. Lecturers are able to teach you the theory and at the same time tell you about how it works in real life.

    Looking back, teaching and constant supervision have been excellent so far.

    Making this Master in Berlin definitely means outstanding networking opportunities that come with being in the financial, cultural and political center of Europe. My experience at the Technische Universität Berlin has prepared me to take on the challenge of establishing a career in international law.Jacobo Fraile (Spain), MBL (2015-16)

    Energy Management MBAWonderful experience during the Energy Law Master program! Challenging topics and interesting lecturers. Meeting people from all over the world! Since February 2019 I am working as a Junior Expert at Bulgaria’s Energy and Water Regulatory Commission and putting into practice most of the experience from the MBL program on European and International Energy Law.Velina Kozareva (Bulgaria), MBL (2017-18)
    Energy Management MBABefore studying the Master in European and International Energy Law I was working in an Oil and Gas company and teaching Law in the same field at a University in Colombia. My motivation to do the Master was widening my expertise to other sources of energy as well as to study the midstream and the downstream market.

    The master was far beyond my expectations! A mix between the most highly regarded academics and practitioners from the most important universities, institutions and firms, pictures the complete spectrum of the energy market focusing on competition law and regulation. Besides, Berlin has an amazing atmosphere and a rich cultural life that makes this experience really enjoyable. Tomás Restrepo (Colombia), MBL (2015-16)

    Energy Management MBAThe program helped me gain a deeper understanding regarding the impact the energy transition has on climate change. The modules about the economy, regulatory and competition law allowed me to learn how energy markets behave under certain circumstances, which has helped me understand the different conditions Latin American countries have. This knowledge has been very useful in my role in EY’s Climate Change and Sustainability Services division. The visit to different facilities and the contact to other international students made the experience complete.Laura María Salazar Kruse (Costa Rica), MBL 2016/2017
