About MBA Renewables, MBA - at Berliner Hochschule für Technik (BHT)

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.

Join other professionals from all over the world in this programme and gain economic, technical, legal, political and organisational expertise tailored to the specific needs of the emerging renewable energy markets. This highly regarded MBA programme will help you to enhance your career prospects.

Our blended learning approach has been designed to meet the needs of students who are studying whilst working. It guarantees maximum flexibility in time management: each student decides when, where and how to learn. The only fixed dates are one examination date per module, with 13 modules to complete over four semesters, and a fifth semester focused on a Master’s thesis.

Blended learning combines self-study, live lectures, interactive group work and optional on-campus time in Berlin, Germany. Students study all modules online – only the oral Master’s examination has to be taken in Berlin, face-to-face with the board of examiners. In the second and fourth semesters we offer our students the opportunity to attend 2 weeks of classes on campus to deepen their technological know-how.
