Launched in 2006, the Energy Management Concentration at the Haskayne School of Business provides students with basic concepts, principles, and information for managing energy operations. Developed as an opportunity to offset skill shortages in the energy industry, this program prepares students for successful careers in the energy sector and related government and service sectors through courses in energy development. This concentration will provide business graduates with a competitive edge for developing careers in the energy sector.

Within this concentration, students are encouraged to consider career paths including:

  • Oil & Gas Traders/Commodities Analysts
  • Energy Negotiations
  • Energy Project Management

These three areas provide the framework through which students are exposed to the strategic issues facing the industry. The purpose of the Energy Management program is to expand opportunities for students in the petroleum, electricity, coal, wind, nuclear, solar, and geothermal industries, attract students to the energy sector, expand the labour pool for entry-level roles in the industry, reduce training time, and enhance exposure to strategic issues and challenges in the industry.
