The Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a major in energy management is unique, encompassing required energy-related coursework from three of the University’s undergraduate colleges. Students choose either the upstream track (exploration and production) with emphasis on land, business development, and legal issues, or the midstream/downstream track (transportation, distribution, marketing, and trading of energy products and commodities). The curriculum encompasses the standard core of business courses for the B.S.B.A. degree, with additional upper-division coursework and electives that are relevant to professional energy management practice.
The TU energy management program is fully accredited by the American Association of Professional Landmen (AAPL). Our program is also the only undergraduate program in the U.S. endorsed by the GPA-Midstream organization.
