Energy & Climate will be on top of the business and political agenda for decades to come, so it’s a very wise choice to get to learn more about these topics.

In my former job at PwC Sustainability we were encouraged to continue studying relevant topics in our daily work. The postgraduate Energy & Climate to me was both interesting content wise and interesting for the work I did for clients in the broad area of sustainability.

The course is very broad. A great variety of aspects surrounding the topic are covered from both a theoretical perspective as from a perspective of business

Following this programme would certainly influenced my career path with my former employer PwC. As it turned out I was elected Member of the European Parliamant during the postgraduate programme. Since my portfolio contains energy, climate, mobility and innovation, I make daily use of the knowledge and concrete examples that were brought forward during the postgraduate programme.

The theory, concrete examples and the discussion among students from different kind of cultural and professional backgrounds were the most valuable things I take with me.

I believe continuous education is essential in a continuous changing world. Energy & Climate will be on top of the business and political agenda for decades to come, so it’s a very wise choice to get to learn more about these topics and take this knowledge with you on the next steps in your journey.

I wanted to understand better what is actually happening

I studied this programme out of interest for the climate issues, and to get a better understanding of what is actually happening.  The combination of climate and energy makes a lot of sense. I also chose the University of Antwerp because the programme could easily be combined with a 90% working regime.  Moreover, as far as I could find out, there are very few European programmes dealing with similar topics.

If you are eager to break with day to day routine and investigate subjects that really matter for society; have interesting discussions with fellow students & lecturers; if you want learn which ideas can be implemented in your professional & private life (mobility, energy efficiency, ...) this course is made for you.

I use the things I learned mainly on a personal level: raising awareness about the climate & energy crisis and better understanding of potential solutions (scope of the climate crisis in all of its aspects, renewable energy, energy storage, energy market characteristics, ...).

On professional level, I try to raise awareness among colleagues and management to test decisions against sustainability criteria (e.g. car policies, mobility options).
