For a limited time, you can apply for the 2021/2022 edition of Eni-MEDEA Master in Energy and Environmental Management and Economics Scholarship funding program that lets you study in Italy as an Italian or Non-Italian that’s pursuing post-graduate studies in Energy and Environmental Management subjects.
The Application Deadline for this scholarship program is April 18th, 2021.
Launched in 1957 to educate professionals who would go on to join Eni, the MEDEA Master’s was the first high-level, post-graduate training course of its kind in Italy and today has become a reference point for the energy sector.
As has been the case since the course began, we are looking for young men and women with a passion for energy and the environment and the desire to build their own future. Eni offers a 10-month study program in a cutting-edge international environment in which students can acquire the very latest knowledge from university professors, managers, and experts from Eni while meeting fellow students from all over the world. This is a life-changing opportunity to invest in yourself and your team, explore a new environment, and enhance your knowledge tremendously.
The MEDEA Master is an MBA course aimed at graduates with degrees in technical, scientific, and economic disciplines, both from Italy and internationally, and at those already working in the energy and environment sector wanting to gain a more in-depth understanding of these areas. The course is focused on the themes of energy and the environment and takes an international and interdisciplinary approach.
The academic staff includes an internal team and professors from leading Italian and international universities, along with experienced managers and experts from Eni. The teaching is made up of lectures, blended learning such as flipped classrooms, which combine online study and classes, case studies, learning by doing, project work, seminars, and conferences, as well as onsite visits.
Starting from the academic year 2020-2021 Master MEDEA is organized and in collaboration with the University of Pavia, in order to provide students with a legally recognized diploma. The Master’s runs from September to June at Eni Corporate University in San Donato Milanese. The courses are delivered in English and require full-time attendance. They generally start in mid-September and end on 30 June.
For international or non-Italian students, there will be an intensive Italian language course during the summer before the course starts. Successful graduates will be awarded the Master’s Degree in Management and Economics of Energy and the Environment (MEDEA).
