Call for APPLICATIONS for the academic year 2019-2020

Following the unanimous decisions of the Senate of the University of Piraeus and the Assembly of the Department of International and European Studies of the University of Piraeus the reestablishment of the Program took place in accordance with Prot. No: 92529/Z1-6/6/2018 Decision of the Ministry of Education, Research and Religious Affairs. We are pleased to announce the opening of the application process for the Master program in Energy: Strategy, Law and Economics for the academic year 2018-2019. The Graduate Program is fully taught in English.
The strategic cooperation plan with the Hellenic Petroleum Group (HELPE) S.A. continues involving the offering of fifteen (15) full scholarships on an annual basis. In addition, the Program has received scholarships from other foundations and corporations.
This is the first Master Program at South Eastern Europe and one of the few programs in Europe dedicated exclusively to Energy strategy, law & economics. It is designed to prepare the next generation of multidisciplinary professionals seeking to obtain strong academic skills in order to pursue careers (particularly in the South Eastern Europe and the Eastern Mediterranean regions) in the energy industry, shipping, international organizations, national and international oil & gas companies, renewables, government and regulatory authorities, the media, policy making institutes and think tanks, consulting houses, law firms, the diplomatic corps, etc. The Program is also pertinent for experts who are already working in the energy sector and seek to become more involved in a dynamically developing field.
The curriculum of our Energy Master Program has been designed with an interdisciplinary approach in mind echoing the demands and expectations of the market where strategy, policy, law and economics are more closely intertwined than ever before. Distinguished Professors (economists, lawyers and political scientists) from the University of Piraeus and other Universities in Europe and the U.S., as well as globally recognized experts, come together with great enthusiasm in this innovative curriculum to address contemporary issues of Energy strategy, law & economics.

  • The specific program combines the interdisciplinary theoretical knowledge with practical application. The courses concern law, economics, strategy and international relations, as well as purely technical issues of E&P and cover the whole spectrum of the energy business and of adjacent or conterminous markets and sectors (shipping, external/foreign policy, regulation, public administration, consulting, etc.)
  • Teaching is undertaken by distinguished university professors as well as experts on a global basis in the fields of energy, international policy, energy law and economics from international energy companies, Independent Authorities, International Organizations etc.
  • Innovative methods of teaching and research are applied which include lectures, tutorials & seminars, conferences, study visits in refineries, LNG terminals and energy companies and institutions, assignments connected with the market (e.g. elaborations of companies’ business plans) etc.
  • Lectures are given over two semesters. Then students work on their Master thesis for the Graduate Program. During each semester, four (4) courses are taught one (1) of which is chosen from a list of up to ten (10) different elective subjects. Lectures start during the Fall and last for eleven (11) weeks for each semester. They are held on Friday evenings and on Saturdays.
  • The selection of candidates is made based on strict meritocratic criteria (academic record, professional experience, language competence/multi-lingualism, professional prospects, etc.). Tuition fees are 5000 euros for the whole program. For the payment of fees, students prepay an admission fee and pay three installments at the beginning of each semester and the beginning of the summer period.
