The Offshore Wind Energy MBA is a joint qualification offer of the University of Applied Sciences Bremerhaven (Germany) and the Business Academy Southwest in Esbjerg (Denmark)

We offer an accredited study programme with an MBA degree.

Our typical students are professionals from the offshore wind industry, who would like to develop their managerial skills on top of their technical expertise. The programme is designed for part-time study, so it can be combined with professional life. Usually, we offer a module quarterly (2×2 workshop days per module). 

Each module is conducted by a team of lecturers: An academic lecturer for the whole course and a lecturer from business who brings in a challenging, up-to-date and real-life case.

The standard programme consists of 9 modules and a master thesis. You can complete the whole MBA in 2,5 years.

The Offshore Wind Energy MBA is supported by Advisory Boards in Denmark, Germany and The Netherlands, in which highly reputable companies in the industry participate. This way, we ensure the study content has a high practical relevance in addition to its thorough academic orientation.

The Study Board

The Study Board consists of two representatives from each representative instance, the Business Academy Southwest (Esbjerg) and the Bremerhaven University of Applied Sciences Bremerhaven. They decide on admission of the participants to the MBA programme. In addition, decisions are made on the further course planning of the modules and the content and relevance of it are regularly reviewed. The Study Board is also responsible for further strategies for internationalizations.

Cooperation Partners

Where suitable we cooperate with further partners, who are active in the Offshore Wind Energy sector. Cooperations take place on an academic level, where we work together with educational institutions, or on an organizational level, where we are supported by companies or other institutions by using their facilities for modules etc.

We further develop the current programme together with the DOB Academy, Delft. This is done in the WISE offshore project which is supported by Erasmus+.

Other examples of cooperation are with the Blue Growth Summer School, organized by the University of Gent and taking place in the facilities of Greenbridge, Ostende, or the cooperation with DNVGL, where the workshops of the module “Innovative Project Management” took place.
