To be considered as an applicant for the Offshore Wind Energy MBA programme, the candidate is already a professional with relevant work experience. Each application is considered individually and we welcome qualifications from various backgrounds.

The formal criteria is a bachelor or other equivalent degree combined with two years’ work experience. If the applicants do not meet this criteria, they may still be considered if they can demonstrate other capabilities or relevant professional qualifications e.g. more than 5 years’ business experience in the industry.

The Offshore Wind Energy MBA is an English-taught programme and the modules are highly interactive. Candidates must show proficiency in English to successfully participate in the modules and go through extensive pre-reading.

The participants will understand the differences in the national legal systems in the North Sea Region. They are aware of legal requirements relevant for the management of offshore wind farms and are able to identify situations where a legal aspect in agreements or management requires specific attention in order avoid hidden risks. Participants can specify requirements to legal experts in situations where an in-depth competency is needed, which is beyond usual managerial scope.
