New concentration focuses on the power industry

The Belk College of Business at the University of North Carolina's Charlotte campus has launched an MBA concentration that focuses on the electrical power and energy industries.

Announced last year, Belk has firmed-up the concentration's curriculum requirements. MBA students who pursue the concentration will be required to take two classes: "Introduction to Energy Systems," and "Energy Markets." Additionally, students will need to take two additional electives, and can choose from topics ranging from "Energy and Environmental Economics" to "Case Studies in Energy Systems."

The MBA concentration in energy is offered through a partnership with UNC's College of Engineering.
