October 7, 2014 By Karen Henry

midwestern-u-energy-manageMidwestern State University in Wicheta Falls, Texas, announced the formation of the Center for Energy Management in the Dillard College of Business Administration. The goal of the center is to train graduates who have business knowledge, skills and competencies to be successful as they enter the exploration, production and acquisition areas of the oil and gas industry. An energy management concentration will be offered through the university’s master of business administration program beginning in the fall of 2015.

According to an article in The Wichitan, the center’s director hopes to incorporate an energy concentration into various undergraduate curricula in the future.

The curriculum was developed by a seven-member advisory committee made up of energy professionals. The group identified the knowledge base that is needed to understand the oil and gas business and the desired skill set for graduates entering the industry.

Energy management has also been incorporated into the business course offerings at the University of Colorado Denver and Harvard Business School.
