Erasmus University Rotterdam launches new energy transition education programmes for future leaders


Erasmus University Rotterdam is introducing a new range of holistic and multidisciplinary educational programmes, to be hosted by the business school of EUR, Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM). The new programmes fit in with Erasmus University's goal of educating the future leaders of the energy transition.

Technical innovations are a crucial part of the solution for the energy transition, but knowledge about legislation, finance, geopolitics, economic models, capital markets, behaviour and social innovations are also essential. RSM intends for students to gain knowledge about the energy transition during their education and plans to give the topic a place in its undergraduate and graduate studies, as well as develop programmes for executives currently in leadership roles.

Cooperation with convergence partner

Much attention in the programmes will also be paid to the required development of leadership skills such as complexity and systems thinking, leading transitions, stakeholder management and communication and storytelling. To ensure that this knowledge and these skills are given a broad foundation, RSM is working with convergence partner TU Delft and the other faculties of Erasmus University Rotterdam to ensure that all aspects that play a role in the transition are covered.
