Deloitte Romania and The Faculty of Energetics team up to revamp the energy sector
Bucharest, 11 September 2017. Deloitte Romania and the Faculty of Energetics of the Politehnica University have signed today a partnership agreement that allows the Faculty to work with the company on its energy projects and offers students access to internships and trainings within the company.
The partnership is part of Deloitte’s efforts to attract the best professionals and offer the best technical expertise to its clients, consolidating its services, programs and market initiatives.
“I am extremely pleased that we are able to offer the exceptional students of the Faculty of Energetics of the Politehnica University the chance to have an immediate contact with the business environment by being exposed to our projects and experiences of a solid team of professionals. We hope this will be a long-term partnership in order to be able to measure its benefits in time. Equally, we are delighted to access the outstanding knowledge of the faculty members and bring this high-level expertise to our clients. At Deloitte, we strive to offer outstanding careers to our young employees, to serve clients with distinction and to be present in those initiatives that connect people and ideas,” said Alexandru Reff, Country Managing Partner, Deloitte Romania.
“The biggest challenges of the energy sector are digitalization and sustainability in the context of the fight against climate change. Deloitte Romania has a portfolio of around 100 clients in the energy sector and the Faculty of Energetics has the technical expertise that may serve our clients to face today’s challenges. The partnership is beneficial both for Deloitte and the Faculty but the biggest winner will be the energy sector that will benefit from our joint capabilities,” added Răzvan Nicolescu, Executive Lead Adviser Deloitte Romania.
With this partnership, Deloitte has also accepted the Faculty’s proposition to have a representative in its Consultation council in order to bring a balance between the existing needs on the labour market in the energy sector and the Faculty’s curricula.
Adrian Badea, Director of the Ph. D. Studies at the POLITEHNICA University said: “Our graduates have the great advantage of a multilateral systemic education that helps them get adapted to new situations and challenges. I believe the partnership signed today will be beneficial to both parties. Deloitte will bring the faculty their excellent expertise in dealing with the business and economic environment by supporting our students in developing their entrepreneurial spirit and in consolidating their knowledge of economics. In its turn, besides the high experience and knowledge of its teachers, the faculty offers the enthusiasm, the intelligence and youth of its students.”
Horia Necula, Dean of the Faculty of Energetics said: “The partnership with Deloitte Romania represents a way of cooperation meant to elevate the level of our educational process in our institution. The links with the business environment – both from the students as well as from the teachers’ perspectives can only be beneficial especially in the energy sector which has been described by deep changes during the past few years. The practical preparation of the students has represented a priority for our university during the past years and such partnerships are essential to achieve our goals.”
