Innovative. Relevant. Comprehensive.
The GEM program is breaking new ground; no other university features a curriculum and delivery method that is in lockstep with both energy industry needs and student goals. If you are looking to advance your career in the energy industry, the GEM program will provide you with the knowledge and skills essential for advancement in today's rapidly evolving energy industry.
Developed in partnership with leading energy companies, our curriculum goes beyond theory - it addresses the practical, real world considerations and challenges energy companies face on a daily basis. GEM is designed to equip future leaders with the tools needed to find solutions to the issues and opportunities found in conventional (oil, gas, coal), nonconventional (oil sands, shale), alternative (nuclear, coal gasification) and renewable (solar, wind, bio-fuels, etc.) energy businesses. This real-world curriculum is taught by faculty members from around the world who have extensive experience in the energy industry.
Partnering with the Energy Industry
The Business School partnered with energy company executives to create the Master of Science in Global Energy Management to help support the industry's leadership succession pipeline. Within the next five years, 40 to 50 percent of senior managers in energy companies are eligible to retire, leaving a serious knowledge gap between middle and upper management. GEM's continued success and ability to deliver such a highly specialized energy leadership curriculum is directly linked to the continuous input, guidance and support from our Advisory Council. The GEM Advisory Council representing top energy leaders in business and government, ensures the GEM program is providing the education necessary for students to advance into executive leadership positions throughout the energy industry.
