The University of Tulsa's exchange program with Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen, Scotland provides a unique opportunity for Energy Management students. RGU is considered one of the top business schools in the UK. Here, TU students can gain a thorough understanding of the international energy industry. Qualified students are also eligible for internships in Aberdeen.

One such student was Joey Moppert. He interned at an international oil and gas technology company while studying abroad at RGU in the Spring of 2012.

"The experience both in the office and in the classroom will change the way I look at both school and work forever," said Joey. "Since I have been exposed to the world outside of the U.S. I can’t wait to take a position abroad. The chance to see how the rest of the world operates and not just the United States is an opportunity of a lifetime. I highly recommend that anyone and everyone take the opportunity to go abroad- whether to work or study."

The Energy Management department at TU encourages all of its students to study at Robert Gordon University for a semester or even the whole year. Time at RGU gives students a leg up in the energy business. The Center for Global Education also offers a $1000 scholarship to any students who go abroad with a direct exchange program. Studying at Scotland's premiere business school is now a very realistic opportunity for University of Tulsa undergrads.
