The Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a major in energy management is unique and multidisciplinary, encompassing required energy-related coursework from all three of the University’s undergraduate colleges in addition to advanced law courses. Students will choose either the upstream track (exploration and production) with emphasis on land, business development, and legal issues, or the midstream track (transportation, distribution, marketing, and trading of energy products and commodities) which includes an automatic minor in finance. The curriculum provides the standard core of business courses for the B.S.B.A. degree, with additional upper-division coursework and electives in accounting, finance, business law, geology, petroleum engineering, energy management, and economics.
