Instructional Format and Curriculum
The Master of Energy Business is delivered in a technology-enriched online instructional format. Full lectures (audio and video) plus other course materials are available on-demand, and instructors and students routinely communicate via contemporary electronic media. Students receive the same instruction and complete the same kinds of assignments as they would in a traditional graduate classroom setting using communication facilities and technologies that are already familiar to them on-the-job.
Students also participate in up to three executive-style weekend seminars conducted over the course of the program on The University of Tulsa campus or at other locations that are centers of energy activity.
Courses are taught by seasoned, full-time faculty from across the University who have direct energy company experience, along with industry practitioners and other experts.
Students enter the program as a cohort each fall and remain with the cohort until graduation. Typical enrollment is two courses per semester (fall, spring, summer) year-round, with completion in 24 months.
The curriculum contains a mix of graduate management courses and classes that are more specific to the energy industry. Some of the same classes that might be found in a traditional MBA are included, but with a distinct energy focus.
The program consists of 10 required courses plus two electives, for a total of 34 credit hours. Students may judiciously choose electives in order to specifically concentrate on energy law, energy finance, or strategic energy operations management. Some of the electives are provided through an alliance with Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen, Scotland, that adds an international flavor.
With a strong interdisciplinary curriculum reflecting the most recent industry recommendations about professional competencies for the future, the Master of Energy Business presents a comprehensive view of the energy industry and delivers the knowledge and skills necessary to address its management, leadership, and decision-making challenges in the 21st century.
