MS in Energy Management Program Details

Energy and power require an international approach

Emphasizing but not limited to oil, gas, coal, solar, wind, hydro and power, the UT Dallas Energy Management Program teaches the management of energy assets. We also have a comprehensive sustainability and corporate responsibility course in the energy curriculum. Our courses are both domestic and international in scope, and our energy faculty and lecturers consist of current and former executive officers and senior managers of large oil and gas companies, power companies and government agencies.

The program’s ever changing and expanding curriculum is shaped by a university curriculum committee and an outside Energy Advisory Board, consisting of officers from companies representing all of the above mentioned energy industries. The outside Advisory Board meets twice a year to advise the Program Director on what skills the energy industries are seeking in program graduates and what the future holds for specialties within those industries.

Energy and power are global businesses with strategic assets in both developed and developing countries and require an international approach. We therefore strive to prepare our graduates to work for private energy companies and in governments to manage their assets. Currently, our business school has the highest percentage of foreign students in the United States. This fits well with our approach, and will afford or graduates with invaluable industry contacts throughout their careers. We prepare and train managers.
