Energy development

Energy Business and Finance - Minor

Through the energy business and finance minor, you can get an overview of the financial, investment, and management concepts applied to private sector organizations that emphasize the Earth and its environment, the energy and mineral industries, or the development of new and enhanced materials. The minor focuses on the leadership and information strategies characteristic of enterprises that are succeeding in a rapidly integrating global economy. 

The minor provides science and engineering students an introduction to basic entrepreneurial and business concepts to help prepare them for success in a changing professional environment. It also provides other Penn State students an opportunity to focus on business strategies in the Earth resources, environmental, and materials industries. 

Offered online or through resident instruction

This minor is available to students studying via Penn State World Campus or at a physical Penn State campus.
