As the world’s energy consumption continues to grow, the demand to develop and train a new generation of energy professionals who can meet the challenge will continue to exist. Located in the heart of energy-rich Oklahoma, TU’s School of Energy Economics, Policy and Commerce offers both undergraduate and graduate programs taught by an interdisciplinary, residential faculty possessing the highest academic credentials and direct industry work experience. Faculty expertise encompasses various aspects of domestic and international energy operations and commerce, including law, finance, accounting, policy, markets, economics, engineering and geoscience. Faculty members are active in numerous professional associations and they engage in research at the intersection of business, science and technology that benefits various components of the global energy complex.
While the school has strong ties to the oil and gas sector, its programs reflect the philosophy that the energy industry is a total system that is continually evolving and must be viewed from a long-term, sustainable perspective. Students develop solid expertise in upstream, midstream, and downstream oil and gas business functions and operations, but they also investigate various aspects of other industry sectors, including alternative fuels, power, and energy efficiency.
