Learn how to address society's energy challenges by drawing on business, economics, and technical knowledge of energy systems in the Energy Business and Finance (EBF) program. The program integrates the study of energy economics within an engineering department, emphasizing risk analysis and decision making related to energy systems and environmental issues.
EBF provides you with broad training in business and economics as relevant to energy production, consumption, and delivery. Students are expected to supplement this training with an approved minor, concurrent major, or term abroad experience, depending on your personal and career interests. The major positions you very well for graduate study in a number of areas, including economics, finance, law and public policy.
The major helps students prepare for careers in the energy and resource industries, financial institutions, non-profit groups, and international organizations dealing with energy and environmental issues, as well as both law and business school. Our alumni now work in a variety of energy and consulting companies, as well as financial trading houses and federal agencies.
The Integrated B.S./M.S. Degree Program enables academically superior and research-focused undergraduate students to also obtain an M.S. degree in Energy and Mineral Engineering in five years of study.
