A new era in Sustainable Energy 

In the global energy landscape, we notice tremendous efforts towards the incorporation of more sustainable electricity sources and a shift away from fossil fuels. Cleaner sources of energy have become a prerequisite in new installations and thus the new energy giants are renewable companies overtaking their fossil fuel based counterparts! A vital driver for these unprecedented facts is the belief that a global transition to cleaner fuels is the only chance we have of avoiding the most catastrophic effects of climate change. 

In this continuously changing scenery which is full of opportunities, energy companies are challenged to shift from vertically integrated monopolies to entities that will adapt to unbundled and strongly competitive markets. Renewable energy generation is the new player which requires a different approach, i.e. integrating different decentralised sources, energy storage and strengthening links with the demand side. Importantly, flexibility is the key parameter to ensure adaptation of a transitioning energy system to decentralised power production and regionalisation of the electricity sector. On the other hand, in the post-pandemic era green investments will spearhead global economic recovery and will constitute a significant part of economic recovery packages, alongside specific requirements. Therefore, the push for increased share of renewables, new "smart" power grids, increased storage options, electrification of transportation, hydrogen and energy savings are now more powerful than in the past decades.

As a leading European business school, ESCP is involved in shaping the future of the energy industry. The Executive Master in Future Energy (EMFE) at ESCP educates the next generation of leaders and pioneering thinkers in the energy sector through a unique style of business education. Built on the principles of its successful Energy Management predecessor, the EMFE programme develops leadership practice immersed in real-world challenges in the energy sector, building upon a diverse community of ESCP faculty experts and world-leading professionals.

The curriculum is developed through the expertise of our grown networks in areas such as oil, gas, renewables, electricity and others, which are at the heart of the EMFE programme. The programme will deal with cutting-edge issues, providing academic knowledge blended with research subjects and practical industry based insights, and offer a modern overview of key knowledge, concepts and tools that are required to succeed in today’s energy sector.

During the course of the programme, participants will have a strong understanding of the energy eco-system as a whole and the importance of innovation, project implementation and sustainable business practices. Completing the programme will allow participants to influence the strategic direction of the businesses and organisations they lead and be able to formulate a world view that incorporates these new imperatives.

Chief Audit Executive at Petrogas E&P LLC

"I was aiming for an Executive Master course where I could gain insight to both the functional and commercial aspects of various energy sectors. I have been associated with several multinational oil and gas companies, primarily delivering internal audit and finance related assignments. The major oil and gas companies are diversifying into renewables sector, and with a broader objective to achieve the ESG goals. The Executive Master in Energy Management programme was a perfect blend with focus on techno-commercial aspects within various energy sectors. The course gave me a good insight into various management functions and disciplines such as project financing, law and economics within the energy industry. The modules were imparted in different campuses and allowed me to gain multiple insights from various energy sector professionals, at different regional and international perspectives. The online modules were all very well structured in terms of the delivery and content and allowed flexibility to learn. The EMEM programme has substantially broadened my learning within the energy management functions and has enabled me to deliver more value in my profession."

"The Executive Master in Energy Management is a highly practical programme for professionals in search of expanding their strategic thinking and industry know-how. Attending the modules in different countries allowed us to visit and meet different companies under different environments and cultures, further enriching the experience. Each professor brought to the classroom a world of experience and insight on the industry, as well as encouraged intellectual discussions, not just for personal growth but also applicable to our day to day work. We also received workshops on research, trading, and other fun dynamics. I am very proud to have been a part of this programme. As a lawyer from Honduras working in renewable energy, the knowledge and understanding acquired through this programme on foreign energy markets and different technologies has expanded my opportunities as a global energy professional."

Associate Director, Site Services and Utilities EMEA at Merck Procurement Global

"Having a business profile with a good technical comprehension level & curiosity, I have worked within various industries (IT, Chemical, Pharma, Biotech, Lifesciences) for a long time. I have always been curious about utilities & energy related topics while holding positions such as Procurement Director or Manager positions, for Capex and Opex portfolios. I was looking for a programme which would develop the skills needed in the energy sector and provide a high level of comprehension of the industry. A programme which would focus on the industry’s challenges and advancements whilst highlighting the expertise in managing project financing as well as innovation.The EMEM programme was a wonderful journey which built a deep understanding of the energy ecosystem. By developing a holistic view to the multiple stakes of the future energy, the programme is the most international and complete program I found. It provided me with practical skills applicable to my company, as well as the key knowledge on how to build strategies and make key decisions within an environment that is complex and volatile. It also offered me qualitative courses, a great diversity of lecturers and an exciting quality of learning! The diversity of my fellow classmates, all around the globe, was also a great add-on, to the class, to the inputs, to the challenges each of us are facing in our various regions. The programme provided strong knowledge, great motivation, and high expertise from the energy industry. I would highly recommend this programme. Since completing the programme, the future strategy for Renewable Energy Sourcing is now under my leadership within my company. I know that the skills and knowledge I have gained throughout the programme will be invaluable and have a significant impact on my career now and in the future."
