MBA Renewables is the first and only distance learning MBA programme focusing on renewable energy and energy efficiency. This international online study programme has been jointly offered by Berliner Hochschule für Technik (BHT) and the Renewables Academy since 2011. The online modules are studied part-time with flexible hours over the course of 2.5 years, including a Master’s thesis.
Berliner Hochschule für Technik (BHT): The motto of Berliner Hochschule für Technik is ‘Study the Future!’, which perfectly encapsulates our aims. The university follows a practical hands-on teaching and applied research approach. BHT’s roots date back to the 19th century, but its present form was established in 1971 when several engineering colleges, including Beuth Engineering School, were united to create the Technical University of Applied Sciences (TFH).
BHT offers the widest range of courses in applied engineering, applied sciences and applied economics in the whole Berlin region. The high quality of the courses is reflected in the numerous prizes awarded for excellent degree results. There are over 70 accredited and innovative Bachelor and Master’s courses at BHT, some of which are available online or as blended courses.
Renewables Academy: The Renewables Academy AG (RENAC), based in Berlin, Germany, is one of the world’s leading providers of training and capacity building on renewable energy and energy efficiency. Since our founding in 2008, more than 19,500 participants from 160 countries have participated in our training programmes.
The implementation of renewable energy and the reduction of energy consumption are increasingly important for securing future energy supplies and climate protection. Qualified staff and suitable conditions are the major prerequisites for the further development of renewable energy. RENAC provides training and further education for technicians, engineers, decision-makers, investors and developers in the areas of renewable energy and energy efficiency.
Our goal is to disseminate, domestically and internationally, the excellent expertise available in Germany on the use of renewable energy and energy efficiency technology. Our education programme contributes to a sustainable global energy supply system.
In addition to the important technical aspects, RENAC also provides instruction on topics that are critical for achieving market growth and for the broader application of renewable energy, such as calculations, legal matters, contracts and monitoring.
