The governance of the energy transition in the context of global warming, universal access to modern energy, and security of supply are key challenges for each country and the international community. The energy transition has economic, political, technological, legal, distributional and international relations dimensions.
The Master in International Energy provides students with a holistic understanding of energy issues, across disciplines and across all energy sources. We offer a rich menu of more than 20 energy courses – there is no equivalent in any other academic program.
The International Energy program at Sciences Po emphasizes students’ active participation and networking. Most of the program’s faculty comes from the main European energy think tanks, including the International Energy Agency; or from industry and the consulting world. Numerous events featuring distinguished speakers are organized by faculty or the Sciences Po Energy Association (an independent student initiative). Each year the Master hosts the Paris presentation of International Energy Agency’s World Energy Outlook.
Governments, financial institutions, policy studies, think tanks and the media seek professionals with sufficient technical knowledge of energy issues to raise the debate. Energy companies, increasingly numerous and diverse, need public policy experts to advise on political and social acceptability of technological solutions and business strategies. Career openings include private enterprises, research institutes, international organizations, banks, consulting and multinational firms.
