Master in International Energy
Energy warrants a cross-discipline, cross-sector study as its supply and use is centre-stage of heated political debate at all levels, in relation to economic growth, sustainable development, stability of financial markets, climate change, security, or technological solutions. Energy supply is and will remain a major development challenge for developing and developed countries alike.
PSIA's International Energy program responds rigorously to a growing worldwide demand in energy expertise, with a cutting-edge curriculum, internship program, and active series of public lectures and events with industry and government leaders. Graduates enter the global job market with a strong international outlook and an incomparable understanding of complex interrelations between different issues, actors and technological solutions.
In short, energy supply and use will remain at the center of the political debate internationally as well as nationally. Creation of a single European energy market remains a major challenge for the Union, and has profound consequences on its external relations. Energy policies need to be adopted at the national and subnational level, and be coordinated internationally.
Governments, financial institutions, policy studies, think tanks and the media seek professionals with sufficient technical knowledge of energy issues to raise the debate. Energy companies, increasingly numerous and diverse, need public policy experts to advise on political and social acceptability of technological solutions and business strategies. Career openings include private enterprises, research institutes, international organizations, banks, consulting and multinational firms.
