The energy sector is undergoing a deep transformation. Incumbent players are challenged by new market entrants, long-established practices are giving way to new technologies, traditional market structures are overturned by new regulations and business models.

In this reality, more complex than ever, new energy business paradigms may emerge. New values may become dominant, now the fragility of our economic system has become visible. Companies that have existed for years may leave the playing field after the crisis, or at least have to reconsider their strategies. What do energy companies have to do in order to survive?  

In these turbulent times the energy industry is needing new leaders with strong management skills, strategic vision and a deep understanding of the business and its socio-economic environment who will be able to reconsider their companies’ strategies and lead their business model innovation to foster the energy transition. 

Thus, Energy Delta Institute is happy to announce the launching of a 2-year Executive Master’s programme in Energy Transition developed and organized in cooperation with the University of Groningen Business School (UGBS). The part-time MBA programme starts in September 2021 and offers a combination of online and offline education – this hybrid form fits in with the way of studying in the new reality and makes global participation easy. The programme is internationally accredited. For more information, please visit the website.
