UNC - Kenan-Flagler to Launch an MBA Concentration in Energy

New concentration to cover management topics in the oil, gas, and renewables fields

The University of North Carolina's Kenan-Flagler Business School has announced that it has launched a new MBA concentration focusing on energy topics.

The new concentration "will equip students with the technical knowledge needed to decode energy issues and apply their skill sets to the industry’s economic challenges," says Stephen Arbogast, the finance professor who is leading the initiative.

Students pursuing the concentration will explore various aspects of the energy value chain, including topics in oil, gas, petrochemicals, and renewables.

Available courses in the new MBA concentration range from "The Energy Value Chain," to "Renewable Energy: Project Development and Finance," among others.

"Students can expect open, non-ideological conversations on all aspects of the energy business led by professionals with experience in global energy firms, finance and consulting," according to a press release from UNC - Kenan-Flagler.

Concurrently with the new MBA concentration, Kenan-Flagler announced that it has also opened a new "Energy Center," which will examine energy public policy through research and programs, as well as support students with MBA curriculum job links.
