MBA Offshore Wind Energy

The development of the MBA programme is conducted as part of the Inn2POWER work package "Improving the workforce". In cooperation with the project partner Business Academy Southwest in Esbjerg (Denmark), an advanced training programme at master's level will be created, tailored for the needs of SMEs (possibly also for larger companies) of the offshore wind industry. The content is being developed in collaboration with companies from the participating countries.

Currently, pilot modules are being developed, which can be completed individually or combined into a certificate contributing to the completion of the MBA Programme. The first courses will start in the January 2019.

The target group are, in particular, engineers who wish to improve their skills in the management sector, but also junior executives, specialists who are involved in the management and control of operational processes, or career changer who want to be involved in the offshore wind sector.

The theoretical contents of the modules are prepared by the participants themselves with predefined materials and via an online platform. Within the framework of workshops, this knowledge is then to be applied together with other participants and two lecturers by means of real-life case studies. These workshops might take place in Bremerhaven or in other participating countries. Lecturers will be both from the business sector and from a scientific context, and will supervise modules in pairs.

The certification of the individual modules and the accreditation of the entire degree course will be developed over the Inn2POWER projects remaining lifetime.
