Harvard Business School to Host Global Energy Seminar

August 13, 2014 By Karen Henry

HBS-library-energy-manageHarvard Business School (HBS) will host its annual Global Energy Seminar from November 2–5 on the HBS campus. This year’s seminar will focus on cross-border negotiation, navigating business-government relations, the challenges associated with state-controlled markets, the effects of market consolidation and fragmentation, risk management, and technological innovations that are reshaping how energy is being produced and consumed.

Seminar instructors include seven HBS faculty members as well as Barney Frank, former US Congressman and chairman of the House Financial Services Committee. The seminar will include a combination of group discussions and faculty lectures coupled with HBS’s case study method. Case studies will feature intriguing firms in the energy sector, providing insights into the solutions to longstanding and newly emerging energy issues.

The Global Energy Seminar is designed for executives of large companies who are responsible for the exploration, management, development and delivery of energy sources and services, including those in the areas of innovation and strategic planning.

Harvard is not the only university to offer energy manager training. More than 30,000 individuals registered for the University of Colorado Denver Global Energy Management (GEM) program’s first open, online course, offered earlier this year.
