KREMS, Austria, April 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Climate changes, scarcity of resources, growing CO2 emissions due to motor vehicles - environmental issues are occupying an increasing portion of daily media coverage. A focal question here is the future of mobility and sustainable alternatives in the field of transport. Future models for companies and regions will be addressed in the new MBA program for "E-Mobility Management" at Danube University Krems starting in September 2011. The course provides the knowledge required to face new challenges and cope competently with business areas relating to production, the electricity industry, sales and marketing.
The "Roadmap to a Single European Transport Area 2011" aims at a competitive and resource efficient transport system for Europe. It takes on the challenge of seeking a deep transformation of it, promoting independence from oil, the creation of modern infrastructure and multimodal mobility assisted by smart management and information systems.
This signifies not merely climate protection but also a boom for the economy and new jobs. In order to cope with these challenges, Danube University Krems is starting a comprehensive university course for Mobility Management. "Vehicles driven by electricity present a range of entirely new requirements which call for timely development of new solutions to supplement the existing products," said the mobility expert Roland Dimai. He is a lecturer and co-developer of the new MBA program in Krems.
The course has been designed in an interdisciplinary manner. Experts from neighboring specialties will also have a say in the matter - such as experts on the subjects of public and private partnership, EU emission trading, or municipal planning.
New areas of business for a variety of branches
The University course addresses energy producers, fleet managers, sales and marketing personnel, product developers, and interest representatives of organizations. Decision-makers from the electricity industry will expand their knowledge by gaining competence on subjects like the need for mobility in aging societies and the requirements of the "New Low Carbon Society", which have been established by the EU Roadmap 2050.
Certified Program and Master of Business Administration
"E-Mobility Management" is a certified program that can be completed in two semesters or extended to obtain the academic degree of MBA (Master of Business Administration) in three (full-time) or four semesters (part-time).
