The study location is on the site of the European Energy Forum (EUREF Campus) around the historical Gasometer in Berlin-Schöneberg. The Campus is the setting of an innovative community including applied research, economic and policy consultancies mainly based on the philosophy of sustainability.
Thus, participants learn in a close cooperation with leading enterprises and institutions located on the EUREF-Campus to become acquainted with real-world projects in the field of energy, infrastructure and mobility. The lecturers are experts from universities, European and national authorities, as well as international and national transport companies.
The growing environmental impact of transport systems, as well as their energy voracity, require new approaches and new concepts. This MBA offers an integrative design across disciplines, addressing a range of different perspectives.
Authorities, businesses and other agencies engaged in transport and mobility must rethink their current strategies. Each urban area faces its own specific set of challenges: congestion, emissions, safety, accessibility and economic implications are only some factors that account for the mobility situation that inhabitants experience. This implies an increased need for broadly educated, skilled managers, capable to frame those issues with social shifts, new technologies and innovative business models.
The theory and practice-driven approach of the program gives students both a conceptual understanding and the skills needed to tackle practical problems, covering the needs of strategy development, analysis and implementation, complex decision-making and project management.
Graduates will be able to plan and to manage complex projects in the transport and mobility fields. The program provides the knowledge and skills for assessing projects from social, sustainability and economic perspectives and for creatively, in teams or independently, finding solutions that consider the varying stakeholders’ interests. Graduates will either be able to enter the labor market (private and public sector) or continue with postgraduate studies.
The MBA program is taught over a period of three semesters. The first two semesters include lectures, tutorials, seminars, company visits and excursions. In the third semester students can specialize by choosing electives according to their interest. The program will be completed in the third semester by writing a master thesis.
The first semester is dedicated to the fundamentals of Business, Technology, Economics and Law in the context of sustainable transport.
In the second semester, trends and the future of transport as well as the transition toward sustainable mobility and involved actors will be the main focuses, which encompasses also the issue of governance and management of complex structures. A lecture series will provide world-based case studies.
The third semester is devoted to specialization and the master thesis.
Elective courses for specialization are offered.
