About

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 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 our modules 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 fee per module is 2000 € (In this price coffee/breakfast, lunch and afternoon coffee/cake is included).

The standard programme consists of 9 modules and the master thesis typically in a period of study is 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.
