A Mastère Spécialisé ® to conduct Energy Transition with ECAM Lyon and emlyon business school


With the ambition to train “pioneer entrepreneurs” to engage in the corporate energy transition, ECAM Lyon and emlyon business school are launching a new Mastère Spécialisé ® in Energy Transition Management. This program is certified by the Conférence des Grandes Ecoles and sits at the confluence of technical and managerial dimensions.


The 2015 act on energy transition, followed by the 2019 law on energy and climate, aiming at reducing the final energy consumption by 50% and achieving carbon neutrality in 2050, both reinforced the strategic character of such environmental issues for the whole of the corporate business. ECAM Lyon and emlyon business school have decided to join forces and address such issues by creating a program to develop an expertise in energy system management and build a low carbon economy. 


This new Mastère Spécialisé® Energy Transition Management demonstrates the school’s determination to break down barriers between disciplines and to support responsible managers who shall contribute to raising collective competencies and changing our societies. As President of the Executive Board of emlyon business school, Tugrul Atamer is convinced that “The hybridization of skills is the key process to invent the future, as a means to build tomorrow’s hybrid managers, and anticipate societal, economic and environmental issues.”


According to Didier Desplanche, Dean of ECAM Lyon, “energy transition calls for multidisciplinary scientific and technical issues. Our answer is our expertise, our technical knowhow. There are multiple solutions to address a great variety of technical, managerial and societal issues. In this new Mastère, we have introduced new levers, and more specifically, innovation management, to better comprehend as a whole, such complex issues. This is one of the many contributions we wish to bring to our society, in an increasingly pressing context of energy transition.”


With the support of partners such as Schneider Electric, ENGIE, EDF, GRT gaz, GRDF, Enedis, Automatique & Industrie, Aura Solaire Digital, Auvergne Rhône Alpes Energie Environnement, AFG Sud-Est, the competitive center Tenerrdis Energy Cluster..., this new Mastère Spécialisé ® shall allow students, as future actors of change, to apply and develop their competencies directly to the field during a 6 month professional assignment.
