MBA Renewables, M.B.A.

  • Application Deadline
  • 30 months
The Beuth University of Applied Sciences Berlin and the RENAC Renewables Academy AG jointly offer the first MBA Renewables distance learning programme with the chance of obtaining a Masters of Business Administration degree focusing on renewable energy and energy efficiency – the MBA Renewables. 


During this MBA Renewables programme offered by RENAC Renewables Academy AG, students benefit from substantiated scientific education and experienced university professors as well as up-to-date market information and practical know-how of the RENAC lecturers experienced in renewable energy and energy efficiency subject matters.

On-campus time

As the MBA Renewables is a distance learning programme, the whole programme can be studied online. However, we highly recommend the practical training module ‘Advanced Practical RE and EE Implementation’ on campus in Berlin at RENAC. 

The focus of the on-campus time is on practical issues, including exposure visits, i.e. field trips. In this way, the students have the chance to deepen their knowledge gained in the module ‘Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Systems and Concepts’ by hands-on training in the RENAC Training Center, theory lessons, field trips and group work. Besides the training aspect, the on-campus module allows students to get to know fellow students, lecturers and the organising team from Beuth University and RENAC personally, as well as to network.


After completing the MBA Renewables on-campus time students are expected to be able to:

  • Assess the appropriateness of various renewable energy technologies and their use for different requirements
  • Calculate renewable energy projects taking into account the availability of natural, technical and financial resources
  • Design a renewable energy system with different renewable energy technologies (to be completed in the project thesis/group work)
  • Evaluate the economic feasibility of energy efficiency measures by taking into consideration varying techno-economic frame conditions

Career prospects and international network

The programme is designed to equip future leaders with modern and advanced interdisciplinary management skills necessary for executive positions in the highly globalised market of renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies.

Possible career paths unfold both upstream and downstream of green energy value chains:

  • project finance and consultancy
  • manufacturing
  • project development and implementation
  • governmental entities
  • NGOs
  • utilities or grid operators
