Governing Energy Transitions CAS-HSG Executive training focusing on the governance of the social, technical, and economic dimensions of the energy transition with Certificate of Advanced Studies (CAS) of the University of St.Gallen! Program Highlights Motivation Switzerland is planning an ambitious energy transition with far-reaching consequences on the national, cantonal, and on the municipal level. As a result, leaders in the energy sector from administration, politics, and industry are faced with significant challenges of realizing political goals, redesigning the infrastructure, adapting business models to disruptive innovations, and strategically repositioning vis-à-vis new market entrants. The program is tailor-made for interested executives in order to develop a thorough understanding of governing the social, technical, and economic dimensions of the energy transition, as well as the competencies required to apply this knowledge at the local level. The overall aim of the program is to facilitate a dialogue between a group of passionate industry experts, government officials and academics and to actively foster a GET-community. Due to the retirement of its founder Prof. Dr. Matthias Finger/EPFL, the program will be continued in 2020 by the University of St.Gallen. Of course, the proven contents and the flipped-classroom-format with focus on Western and Central Switzerland will be maintained. Besides, we are very pleased Matthias will continue to be actively involved in the GET-Curriculum. Enrolment Requirements The executive training is designed for practitioners with a degree at tertiary level (technical, commercial or legal). However, interested persons with professional qualifications and corresponding working experience may also be admitted; the decision is made by the program management. Impact Project The direct transfer into practice will significantly enhance the learning success of the participants. Guided by an integrated frame of reference and supported by individual, professional coaching, the participants will develop a solution for a current challenge of their professional daily life. Diploma Upon successful completion of the Executive Training, participants receive a CAS (Certificate of Advanced Studies) from the University of St.Gallen, which is graded with 10 ECTS points.
