Building Sustainability – Management Methods for Energy Efficiency MBA

Building Sustainability is a Master’s program which is a comprehensive, interdisciplinary course for those who plan a career in real estate project planning and management with a focus on implementing sustainability and acknowledging the relevance of different urban contexts.

The concept of the German „Energiewende“ – literally, energy transition – has gained international attention. It includes a variety of measures that aim at making Europe’s largest economy free of fossil fuels and nuclear energy. In order to attain this, all areas of energy production and consumption will have to go through a transition process. Besides mobility and industry, buildings are therefore one of the key factors for a successful Energiewende.
TU Berlin Alumni Program
The MBA program in „Building Sustainability – Management Methods for Energy Efficiency“ comprises skills, methods, and concepts to consider different approaches, to understand them, and to align them for reaching sustainable solutions. Such competencies are indispensable in every building, construction, and real estate project that takes energy efficiency and other sustainability criteria as balancing economic, social, ecological, and cultural aspects in responsibility for future generations into account.

In this regard, students will learn a lot from experts and from each other and hopefully enjoy the international, interdisciplinary teamwork as well as Berlin’s urban and cosmopolitan atmosphere.

Learning and studying in small groups of up to 30 students allows for individual and excellent learning conditions.


Quality Assurance

Part of sustainability is quality management. Quality should not be left to chance, but be the result of a continuous improvement process. The TU Berlin changed its quality focus from the quality assurance of individual study programs to the evaluation of the university as a system. The TU Berlin has designed its quality assurance procedures in such a way that the participating actors can develop themselves in a responsible manner and in dialogue with each other. System accreditation leads to the accreditation of all study programs offered by a university.
“The subject of system accreditation is the internal quality assurance system of a university in the field of study and teaching. The structures and processes relevant for teaching and studies are examined to ensure that they achieve the achievement of the qualification objectives and the high quality of the courses, whereby the requirements of the Conference of Ministers of Education (KMK) are the European Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ESG). and the criteria of the Accreditation Council apply.

A positive system accreditation certifies the university that its quality assurance system in the field of study and teaching is suitable for ensuring the achievement of the qualification objectives and the quality standards of their degree programs. Degree programs that are set up according to the specifications of the accredited system or have already been subject to internal quality assurance according to the specifications of the accredited system are thus accredited.” (Own translation after German Accreditation Council of 20/02/2013.)
Currently, the final phase of the accreditation process has started and received the label of the system accreditation in the near future is possible. Please visit the webpage Central Evaluation and Accreditation Agency ZEvA for more information.

I studied MBA building sustainability, which give me wide insights to the broad topic of energy transition in building sector from architecture to building facilities and real estate up to urban and regional planning. Having lecturers with different energy related backgrounds builds an ideal atmosphere for cross sectoral discussions in energy and sustainability fields in built environment. Locating in a dynamic environment of the Euref campus in one side, and high range of international students from the other side prepare a proper networking opportunity for the students. Personally innovation and technology management course supported me methodological in approaching my career goals in the area of innovation management and business development for the energy transition. Nastaran (Iran)
The Building Sustainability program opened my eyes to the different aspects that comprise what we call sustainability. As an architect, I found the perfect added value I was looking for. The master’s degree gives you the tools to technically support construction projects from an economic, social and environmental point of view.
The MBA provides you an international and interdisciplinary environment, which allows you to expand your personal and professional horizons. The master counts with experts in the different areas of the program and the coordination team will always be there to support you in any situation. I am currently working in the area of sustainability for an architectural and engineering company in Berlin and I believe that I owe this in large part to the Master’s program.Andrés (Mexico)
I have always been passionate about architecture and resource efficiency, how to help the world in the fight against climate change. There master in Building sustainability allowed me to learn from A-class experts, in what might be one the most innovative and inspiring campuses around the world, the EUREF campus.
The business background and real project assignments provided me with the experience and tools to take the knowledge to the real world and perform in an outstanding way. Studying in one of the most prestigious universities, also allowed me to start working from the very beginning in a fascinating company that is driving the change in the energy sector.
So far it has been the most enriching experience of my life and it went beyond all expectations.Jesica(Colombia)
European and International Energy Law (MBL)

European and International Energy Law MBL

The MBL in European and International Energy Law at the Euref Campus Berlin was a terrific opportunity to fully untangle the intricacies of the fast-paced changing energy sector.

The Master’s program combined a multidisciplinary approach (law, economics, and technical knowledge) together with various lecturers ranging from academia, public institutions and the private sector, which provided me with a solid and wide-ranging knowledge base of the energy industry.

I believe that this unique, empowering and inspiring experience kick-started my professional career in the energy sector as I was then hired for a traineeship at the European Commission Director-General for Energy.Adriano Capitanelli, (Italy), MBL (2016-17)

Prior to attending TU, I was working in an Oil & Gas Company in Ankara, Turkey. I decided to undertake MBL and choose to study here because of its unique curriculum with technical, economical and legal aspects of energy. The course offers not only theoretical knowledge but also practical information with its excursions. The lecturers have impressive academic and professional experiences. The classes are very interactive and relevant to what is happening globally in the energy industry.

Also, I have found a great chance to improve my German language skills, thanks to TU’s language school. I definitely recommend the MBL Programme and encourage people to apply for a place, too.Seher Cirak Ates (Turkey), MBL (2015-16)

The energy sector is a growing and complex area and the European and International Law MBL program at the TU Berlin strives to place energy law in a multidisciplinary and international context. Coming from a legal background, I have enjoyed developing my understanding of the economics of the energy sector. A further strength of the program is its practical focus with many of the lecturers being industry professionals and experts in their respective fields and we have had some interesting excursions to energy companies and energy-efficient power plants. There is a diverse mix of students from around the world with different perspectives on the challenges and opportunities that the energy and renewable sector face.

The TU EUREF Campus is a great place to study with many different energy and renewable companies and start-ups situated here (and as an added bonus has some nice restaurants!).Kristen Ellerker (Australia), MBL (2015-16)

I chose the master course on European and International Energy Law offered by the Technische Universität Berlin because of its outstanding reputation, highly qualified lecturers, course preference compared to other universities, and proximity to my country, Spain.

I wanted to combine my interest on European and International Law with Energy Law, specifically renewable energy issues, and I feel that the course successfully merges the two. The course offers an extremely solid base on competition law, regulatory law and economic fundamentals. The general vibe and dynamic structure of the modules is really enjoyable since we are constantly debating and discussing different issues. I loved the International Regulatory Law classes in particular wherein lectures were delivered by professionals practicing in the field. Lecturers are able to teach you the theory and at the same time tell you about how it works in real life.

Looking back, teaching and constant supervision have been excellent so far.

Making this Master in Berlin definitely means outstanding networking opportunities that come with being in the financial, cultural and political center of Europe. My experience at the Technische Universität Berlin has prepared me to take on the challenge of establishing a career in international law.Jacobo Fraile (Spain), MBL (2015-16)

Wonderful experience during the Energy Law Master program! Challenging topics and interesting lecturers. Meeting people from all over the world! Since February 2019 I am working as a Junior Expert at Bulgaria’s Energy and Water Regulatory Commission and putting into practice most of the experience from the MBL program on European and International Energy Law.Velina Kozareva (Bulgaria), MBL (2017-18)
Before studying the Master in European and International Energy Law I was working in an Oil and Gas company and teaching Law in the same field at a University in Colombia. My motivation to do the Master was widening my expertise to other sources of energy as well as to study the midstream and the downstream market.

The master was far beyond my expectations! A mix between the most highly regarded academics and practitioners from the most important universities, institutions and firms, pictures the complete spectrum of the energy market focusing on competition law and regulation. Besides, Berlin has an amazing atmosphere and a rich cultural life that makes this experience really enjoyable. Tomás Restrepo (Colombia), MBL (2015-16)

The program helped me gain a deeper understanding regarding the impact the energy transition has on climate change. The modules about the economy, regulatory and competition law allowed me to learn how energy markets behave under certain circumstances, which has helped me understand the different conditions Latin American countries have. This knowledge has been very useful in my role in EY’s Climate Change and Sustainability Services division. The visit to different facilities and the contact to other international students made the experience complete.Laura María Salazar Kruse (Costa Rica), MBL 2016/2017
