The IESE Energy Club organises every year a half a day trek in Barcelona to discover the dense mesh of the energy companies. Between utilities such as Naturgy, energy-intensive customers such as CELSA, or all the independent startups and utilities, Barcelona has a lot to offer. Right after class, a group of 20 students has the opportunity to interact with professionals and understand all the challenges associated with the energy sector
Every year, students fly to London to discover companies over three days. More than just a trip, it is an opportunity for them to project themselves after the MBA. Historically, the trek has been focussing on large corporations such as Shell or Saudi Aramco but over the past few years, we have seen many different companies ranging from small startups such as LimeJump to national associations as the World Nuclear Association or consulting firms such as BCG or ERM.
Smart Mobility Congress
Barcelona is well famous for its endless number of congresses. One is within the scope of the IESE Energy Club, the Smart Mobility Congress. Focussing on mobility and the future trends, the organisation gives the immense opportunity to a restricted group of students part of the IESE Energy Club to visit for free the event. Through a preparation process organised by the Club, students are well-prepared and can target with serenity the companies they are interested in.
Behind the energy sector, there are physical assets, producing energy, processing commodities. Pamplona is known to be the green hub of Spain where most of the renewable assets are manufactured. With Acciona, Siemens Gamesa and GE Renewables, the students of the IESE Energy Club have the opportunity to discuss with the people at the forefront of the energy disruption.
What’s best than a good old pub quiz with a beer from our sponsor Estrella to raise awareness about the energy sector !
