Our faculty surveyed the energy sector and took a novel approach when doing so by asking the industry what skill sets would you like to see in a business graduate. The responses all centered on a theme; “we would like your business graduates to have grounding in technical disciplines. The energy industry is a very technical industry mostly comprised of engineers. Our business leaders need to be able to communicate and work in a technical environment.” The GEM Professional Program provides the basis for these fundamentals. This edge will allow you the potential to explore positions within the energy industry which might otherwise be unavailable to you.
The Global Energy Management program provides the foundation and preparation for entering into the dynamic, high paying energy industry. The program has three options:
The curriculum for each option has been designed to blend a technical background, not unlike the basis for an engineering degree, with the management skills missing in most energy workers today. This blended approach results in a much more appealing candidate for the energy industry.
Each option offers a special focus on energy related courses at the advanced level. The GEM program has been designed and taught by industry professionals; academicians and practitioners who bring the real world of energy business to the classroom. No matter what option you choose, GEM students have an unparalleled opportunity to network with industry professionals, are eligible to apply for exclusive internships and scholarships, and develop a first-hand knowledge of the largest industry in the world.
UH through Bauer College also offers an interdisciplinary minor in Energy and Sustainability.
UH students interested in an energy focus within the Finance Major (either the GEM-Professional Program or the GEM track in Finance) or the Global Energy Management minor should contact the Finance Academic Advisor Joanna Arnold at firstname.lastname@example.org. Appointments can be made with the online scheduler via my.UH.edu.
To officially declare these programs, students must meet degree plan filing requirements and apply online.
