The University of Texas at Dallas' Jindal School of Management will launch a new Master of Science in Energy Management program, according to the school's website.
“The Jindal School has built a program focused on the finance and managerial aspects of the energy industry in order to give students the ability to evaluate economics of energy projects, to finance them, to create strong strategies for the industry,” Anastasia Shcherbakova, the program's director, said in a recent Jindal story about the new program.
Indeed, the program's core curriculum covers a range of topics that are important in the energy industry, with classes such as "Energy Finance," "Business Economics" and others. Through the program's elective curriculum, students can drill into specific issues, through classes like "Geographic Information Systems Fundamentals" and "Project Management in Engineering and Operations."
The new program aims to prepare students for careers in the energy industry as well as related sectors. The region hosts many major energy companies, including Exxon-Mobil, Halliburton, and Calpine, among others.
To apply for the program, a GMAT score is required. Students from all undergrauduate disciplines are welcome to apply.
