Energy Experts Testimonials


ESCP Business School is well known for its unique historical status and powerful international network. But what makes the energy programmes extra special is the input from those who have held, and those who still hold, senior posts in the energy policy and management fields. There is nothing like building on the insights provided by those with practical experience. I have been highly impressed by the quality of students.

I was looking for a programme that would develop the skills needed in the energy sector and provide a high level of comprehension of the industry. A programme that would focus on the industry’s challenges and advancements whilst highlighting the expertise in managing project financing as well as innovation. The EMEM programme was a wonderful journey that built a deep understanding of the energy ecosystem. By developing a holistic view of the multiple stakes of future energy, the programme is the most international and complete program I found. It provided me with practical skills applicable to my company, as well as the key knowledge on how to build strategies and make key decisions within complex and volatile environments. The diversity of my fellow classmates was also a great add-on, exploring the challenges each of us are facing in our various regions. Since completing the programme, the future strategy for Renewable Energy Sourcing is now under my leadership within my company. I know that the skills and knowledge I have gained throughout the programme will be invaluable to my career now and in the future.
