Undergraduate Energy Management Program

Mission Statement

To prepare tomorrow’s leaders, through an energy-focused, interdisciplinary curriculum, for careers in the upstream, midstream and downstream sectors of the global energy industry.

The University of Tulsa’s multidisciplinary energy management program combines traditional academic coursework with practical knowledge and understanding of one of the world’s most vital and volatile industries.

The energy management program is one of only nine such programs approved by the American Association of Professional Landmen in the U.S. and the only one offered by a private institution. Students develop a solid foundation in business law, finance, environmental economics and energy commodities trading, in addition to studying alternative energy sources. With a unique curriculum and strong industry support, our program prepares students for employment opportunities in the upstream (exploration and production), midstream (trading and transporting of energy commodities) and downstream (refining and marketing) sectors of the energy industry.

Opportunities to gain valuable experience and insight through participation in industry internships, local mentoring programs and the Tulsa Energy Management Student Association (TEMSA) serve as complements to the classroom experience.

Currently, there are two student international exchange programs in both Scotland (Robert Gordon University – RGU) and Singapore (Singapore Management University – SMU) available to energy management students. Both offer the opportunity to work energy-related internships for course credit.
