Energy Economics and Finance

Bachelor of Science with a Major in Energy Economics and Finance (128 CR)
The Energy Economics and Finance major is designed to provide a foundation in geological sciences and a rigorous selection of economics and finance courses focused on energy topics to enable students to perform business analyses as members of asset-project teams for a range of business analysis positions in the energy industry, from business and financial analyst or project analyst for an energy company or a utility, to energy loan specialist for a financial institution, to energy economist, to a corporate planner leading eventually to CFO or CEO positions and to positions as energy-audit consultants to public service commissions. The special strengths of the program include its capability to link economic and financial analysis processes and practices with energy-related issues, its ability to offer students the opportunity to enhance this link through "options" that provide specialization, and its uniqueness within the region.

The Energy Economics and Finance program is designed to prepare students to be financial analysts capable of providing value to energy organizations. To meet this objective, the curriculum builds upon a strong business core by further blending knowledge in three areas: geology, economics, and finance. The curriculum has four components: General Education, College of Business Core Requirements, required major courses, and elective options.
