The MBA-Renewables Distance Learning Master degree conducted since
2011 by the German Beuth
University of Applied Sciences in Berlin jointly with the
Renewables Academy (RENAC) has received the official accreditation of
the Foundation for International Business Administration Accreditation
Accreditation is an internationally procedure of quality assurance in
higher education. FIBAA's mission is to promote quality and transparency
in education by awarding quality labels to programmes and training
providers in the areas of higher and continuing education. Thanks to
this certification, the Beuth
University of Applied Sciences in Berlin and RENAC guarantee their
students the international recognition of the MBA Renewables and ensure
the highquality of the academic portfolio.
Until now, MBA Renewables is the only Distance Learning Master of
Business Administration with a focus on renewable energy (RE) and energy
efficiency (EE). This degree combines economic, technical, legal,
political and organisational knowledge tailored to the specific needs of
the RE and EE markets. In addition, students gain an overview of various
RE and EE-technologies as well as an understanding of international
energy policies, supporting mechanisms and their application in the
industry. "To ensure a comparative equivalence between technicians
and non-technicians, students start this module with a group work
assignment in which each group comprises at least one engineer and at
least one student with a business background", FIBAA underlines. "The
students can learn from each other".
Among other aspects, FIBAA has highlighted that "the content of the
programme and the reachable learning outcomes are such that the students
achieve employability above average". The RE and EE markets are very
dynamic. Therefore, RENAC and the core of professors act as link with
the industry, updating with the Beuth University the academic offer to
the latest trends and needs of a sector in constant evolution.
"The online feature enabled me to continue my job without
interference", says Monica Harting, Engineer at juwi and one the
first MBA Renewables students. "Most of my fellow students are people
actually working in renewables - a very valuable network!".
Moreover, the two-week face-to-face phase in Berlin with field trips
offers an excellent opportunity for networking and getting an insight
into the green energy industry.
University of Applied Sciences in Berlin offers a wide range of
accredited and innovative courses in applied engineering, applied
sciences and applied economics. It counts with more than 30 years of
recognised experience in conducting Distance Learning programmes. The
high quality of the courses is reflected in the numerous prizes awarded

RENAC, a globally operating expert on training for renewable energies
and energy efficiency, delivers major input to the MBA-Renewable
programme and serves as bridge between students and the industry.
