Master of Energy Business awarded AAPL accreditation

The American Association of Professional Landmen (AAPL) has awarded accreditation for the Master of Energy Business program at TU’s Collins College of Business.

“AAPL is the national association that all regional Landmen organizations report up through, and sets the standards for landmen and land-related persons to follow,” said Linda Nichols,  director of TU’s Master of Energy Business program. “Accreditation underscores the quality of our program’s curriculum, instructors and the university’s commitment to its ongoing success.”

AAPL provides curriculum guidance and program support for undergraduate and graduate level energy management and petroleum land management programs at accredited universities in the United States and Canada. The organization works with these programs to encourage the infusion of new talent to the profession..

The Master of Energy Business is one of only three post-baccalaureate programs accredited by the American Association of Professional Landmen (AAPL). Established in 1956, AAPL serves as the voice of the landman profession and continually seeks to foster industry cooperation through proactive legislative advocacy. With over 16,000 members nationwide, AAPL provides training, education, and certification, works closely with the public to advance oil and gas interests, promotes ethical standards, and advocates for policies and practices that ensure the continued success of US energy needs.
