The Norwegian School of Economics and Business Administration (NHH) has offered “Kraftanalytikerstudiet”, a programme in Financial Energy Analysis since autumn 2000. The programme was revised in 2006 in order to make it available to a wider European market. It is now offered in English.
The scope of the programme has been expanded to cover a wider selection of energy sources and markets. The programme has five intensive seminars, providing a total of 24 ECTS points. Four of the seminars will be held in Copenhagen and a fifth in Bergen. All course assignments and the final exam can be delivered in English, Danish, Norwegian or Swedish.
A financial marketplace for energy has developed to meet need for risk management amongst producers, suppliers and consumers. Forwards are traded for changing variable prices to fixed prices, or for changing future prices between different areas or forms of energy. In addition contracts are traded to secure minimum or maximum prices, or to provide a right to change future prices for different forms of energy or areas (options).
An energy company can use information from the energy financial market as the basis for estimating the market value of a given position, activity or segment (mark-to-market), and its exposure to risk (Value at Risk). Market information can also be used with a view to achieving a more profitable use of resources in a business, for example in production or distribution. At the same time an energy company can operate actively in the energy market to implement its own risk management strategy or to take a position on own market view.
One of the purposes of the programme is to provide knowledge and insight on the basics and principles of option-pricing theory with regard to the energy financial markets. This can be applied to supporting decisions at the corporate level in the energy sector.
Target group and organisation of the programme
The Certificate in Financial Energy Analysis is a specialised programme, developed for people working with corporate level decisions in the European energy market. People linked to other product markets, financial institutions or public competition and regulation bodies can also benefit from this programme.
The programme is demanding and requires active participation from everybody involved. Participants are expected to work on assignments between sessions, and these will form the basis for discussion and follow-up during the next session.
A minimum of three years’ higher education equvalent to a bachelor degree and three years’ relevant work experience is required.
The programme builds on previous knowledge of ﬁnance, mathematics and statistics, and it is required that applicants have a business, economics, or technical education that contains elements of these.
