The organization currently conducts its five-day Green Power MiniMBA courses all over the world along with several one- and two-day courses on specific elements of the solar industry.
“We already offer “3-day MBAs” in bioenergy and geothermal Energy,” said Green Power spokesman John Massey. “So solar is a natural progression, given the popularity of the concept in these other areas. “
He said the five-day Green Power MiniMBA has been well-received throughout the world. The organization hosts the intensive continuing education programs in locations around the globe. “The core content of the program is essentially the same in every location,” Massey said, “both since the fundamental principles of the various renewable energy sources and their economics remain the same.”
He said the programs all highlight specific information, statistics, programs and relevant information about the geographic area they’re visiting. However, many of the companies MiniMBA students are managing have an international presence or are looking to develop one in the solar and renewable energy market. For that reason, he said, the organization is certain to include information about how different countries around the world are approaching renewable energy sources.
The continuing education program caters to those who are already working in the solar or renewable energy industry, Massey said. But it’s applicable information for people working in any sector of the field with any level of experience in renewable energy.
“All are senior management level,” Massey said. “But some are new to renewables while some have been in it for longer and are looking for a good, comprehensive overview outside their particular box.”
It’ aslso a good opportunity to network with industry leaders from other countries and to exchange ideas, Massy said.
