I can't see any situation where this would be the best option available to someone. The TU is mistaken to call this an MBA, since the management courses are a minority of the courses. It would be impossible for these degrees to win international accreditation. If you want to have this programme of study, take an MSc costing 10% of the price at a traditional university. At NHH, FH Koeln and elsewhere a similar MSc is available to non-EU students for under €5000. https://www.mastersportal.com/search/#q=kw-%22energy%20management%22|lv-master|rg-1|tr-[1000,5000],[500,1000]|mh-face2face|de-fulltime

Thank you Duncan. I have BBA so I am looking for a business course. Also, I have 7 years of experience in Oil and Gas in a International Company, but I would like to learn about oil and gas and renewable energy.

I would like to work in Germany after my studies and then have my international career.


Do you know about other masters which cover this?

I have seen Msc. energy Management in ESCP but seems that it no covers technology module.

I have read that TUB recently was recognized as excellent university by and alliance with HU and FU. As I plan to work in Germany, How do you see this situation?

I don't see how this is a business course but the MSc options with similar content are not. The link I shared lists lots of similar options. TU Berlin is a too German university. Given your BBA, i think their course would duplicate much of what you have already studies. An intensive German course would benefit you more.

I don’t think that a Top German University as you said, do a mistake of naming MBA degree..

As far as I found in the internet, seems that they started probably in 2012-2013 with an MSC with the same fee but over 2 years. Then, they shifted to MBA for Energy, Mobility and Law in the Euref Campus. Therefore, this programs are new and probably will earn an accreditation in the incoming years.

I think this is normal, most of the Business schools, universities have to start from the ground, and getting accreditations. It’s about time.

I see that Schneider Electric is granting scholarships to these masters, which I have never seen from private universities...

Schneider is an excellent and reputable company. I don’t think that they give their name to useless programs..

I am not saying it's useless, but that there is better value available. But you are mistaken in saying it will get international accreditation.

I have seen that other non reputable universities have programs which begun 10 years ago and they are getting their first accreditation, so if that is the trend. How do you know that they are not going to work to have an accreditation?
Based on what?

Based on the criteria of the international accreditation bodies. For example: https://www.mbaworld.com/-/media/files/accreditation/mba-criteria-for-accreditation.ashx?la=en For example, the right amount of work experience is not required. Less than a quarter of the academic team are faculty members of the TU. From what I can see, the faculty members are not obviously all research-active. I also doubt that all the faculty members are really incorporated asa team, since there are moreof them than there are students... I really wonder how involved all thesepeople can be,

Also, it must be asked: do you already speak German? It may be hard t work at this level, in the energy industry, in German, without fluent German. Without German skills an MBA from an international-facing school like ESMT might be more relevant.

In my particular case. Yes, I speak German and I have a B1 certificate. I want to get B2 during my studies.

As most of my experience is related to Energy, particularly in Oil and Gas in a industrial company (Ge former employee). I don’t want to shift to other sectors such as Banking and so on..

Even at the B2 level you may find yourself struggling to land jobs at the management level in Germany. Perhaps aiming lower - doing a specialized MSc and then looking for more technically-oriented jobs in the energy sector - where perfect fluency would be less important - would be a better idea.
