Ruben Nooijen
"Studying energy made me well-prepared to help face the challenge of the energy transition - Having developed a strong personal interest in energy during my studies, Economics of Regulating Markets (ERM) was my favorite course of the master's degrees in Economics and Finance. It offers the perfect way to get acquainted with the basics of the different energy systems and how these markets could be regulated effectively. The weekly case studies cover present-day topics and make sure you have up-to-date knowledge about the dynamic energy industry."
