Welcome from the director
“Energy studies for energetic people!”
It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the website of the MSc in Energy: Strategy, Law & Economics of the Department of International & European Studies of the University of Piraeus, Greece. Following the innovative work at the Department of International & European Studies in 2014 and invaluable contribution and enthusiasm of our colleagues and ex director Prof. A. Tziampiris we have established an extremely selective Master’s Degree that has the distinction of being, internationally, one of the very few ground breaking such programs dealing with these issues.
The focus of the degree is clearly interdisciplinary and aims to attract students and especially professionals willing or already pursuing careers in all aspects of the energy industry broadly defined, politics, journalism, shipping, international organizations, law, diplomacy, consultancy firms and the world of think tanks.
Our faculty members have been carefully selected for both their academic excellence or professional expertise and renown as practitioners.
This innovative MSc in Energy: Strategy, Law & Economics is offered in English. The curriculum 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 US, as well as globally recognized experts, come together with great enthusiasm in this innovative curriculum to address topical issues on Energy strategy, law & economics.
