Master in Energy/Renewables: advice needed!!!


paolo1

Hi Guys,

I am currently employed in an Oil&Gas Company in Italy. I am currently 30 (MEng. Electronics, GPA:3.7) and I have 5 years relevant work experience within the field.
I am really interested in Energy Sector but not fully satisfied with my current job, and I am thinking about attending a Master (with the potential for a career change/step up). Preferred Future Career path: Programme/Project Mngt. or Energy Mngt., in energy/renewables sector.

Given my work experience/age I looked for a 1year full time MBA but found only a few with Energy Concentration. On the other hand I found some interesting MSc courses in renewables (covering both tech. & economics aspects). What should I go for? Please consider I am not interested in becoming a banker or top strategic consultant.

Thanks in advance,

Paolo

Dear Paolo,

I am a 21 year old guy studiing energytechnics and energymanagement in Darmstadt, Germany. I discovered that it is always better for the first step to do more technical skilled master programms. In my oppinion the MBA would work best for you cause you are skilled enough concerning technical issues.
You have to ask yourself what your needs are? Do you want to get to know something about management or technics?

Nevertheles: maybe the master of Renewable energy management(MSc) at university Freiburg ist fitting your neds?
