Teacher Smiling in Class
Through the Area of Energy Commerce and Business Economics, students can earn an energy commerce degree, preparing them for careers directly and indirectly related to the energy industry. While primarily concentrating on the upstream (exploration and production), midstream (transportation and refining) and downstream (wholesale and retail distribution) commercial and operations functions of the oil and gas industry, students examine the increasingly important role of alternative and clean energy sources. In addition to extensive academic research and publication, our award-winning faculty bring a wealth of energy industry experience to the classroom and teach highly marketable skills through hands-on experiential opportunities, case studies and simulation projects. Graduates are prepared to succeed in many areas of the energy business, including land negotiations, commercial analysis, business development and energy trading.
