The University of Tulsa’s interdisciplinary 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 9 such programs in the U.S. and one of two 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 and storing of energy commodities) and downstream (refining, marketing and distribution) 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. The energy management program is designed to educate students in all areas of business—accounting, economics, finance, marketing, international business and computer information systems—because the energy management profession involves interaction with all these areas.
