Energy Minors

The School of Energy Economics, Policy and Commerce offers three minors for undergraduate students:

Minor in Energy Business for business majors
Individuals pursuing a major in the Collins College of Business may elect to add an 18-credit-hour minor in energy business. The minor encompasses fundamental knowledge of energy industry operations and permits students to more effectively target their education for careers across the global energy landscape. Though cyclical in nature, the energy industry has historically been a major US employer, providing interesting, dynamic, and highly compensated jobs with opportunities to work both domestically and abroad. Adding the minor in energy business may provide graduates in traditional business disciplines such as accounting, finance, management, information systems, and economics with a specific edge in the employment competition.

Minor in Energy and Environmental Resources Management
The School of Energy Economics, Policy and Commerce offers an interdisciplinary minor in energy and environmental resources management for individuals pursuing any major (other than Energy Management) at The University of Tulsa. Depending on the courses that have already been completed as part of the student’s major, adding the minor requires an additional 14-19 credit hours of coursework. The management of energy and environmental resources is a rapidly expanding field that draws on a number of technical and non-technical disciplines used in planning, analyzing, directing, governing, and accounting for the energy needs of communities, corporations, and government entities. The minor provides students with a foundation of skills and knowledge necessary to pursue careers in this vital arena.

Minor in Energy Business for engineering and natural sciences majors
Individuals pursuing a major in the College of Engineering and Natural Sciences may elect to add an 18-credit-hour minor in energy business. The minor encompasses fundamental knowledge of business disciplines and permits students to more effectively target their education for careers in the energy industry. While cyclical in nature, the energy industry has historically been a major US employer, providing interesting, dynamic, and highly compensated jobs with opportunities to work both domestically and abroad. However, many industry employers today prefer employees with abilities beyond technical skills who can immediately add value to the overall corporation. Consequently, adding the minor in energy business may provide graduates in disciplines such as petroleum engineering, mechanical engineering, chemical engineering, and geoscience with a specific edge in the employment competition. In addition, because many technical employees in the energy industry go on to complete an MBA, completing the minor in energy business would satisfy most of the prerequisites necessary for admission to a business graduate school.
