GEM Student Experience Webcast

Wednesday, November 9, 2016 from 12:00 - 1:00 MST.

The best way to learn about a graduate school program is to hear about the first-hand experiences of its students and alumni. Join the GEM community to learn about the student experience in the program and how the program has impacted their careers. We’re bringing together students and alumni from all energy sectors to address the most frequently asked questions from prospective students.

  • Why did you select the GEM Program – why should I enroll?
  • How has it advanced your career in the energy industry?
  • How do you incorporate going back to school with work and personal obligations?
  • How has learning about other energy sectors helped you in your current position?
  • How has being a part of a “cohort” contributed to your overall experience in the program and/or once you graduated?
  • I don’t live in Denver, how hard is it to attend the cohort weekends?
  • What types of opportunities does the program offer outside of the classroom?
  • Do the projects you complete in class relate back to your current positions? Have you applied what you are learning in class to your current positions?

GEM is an ALL energy graduate business and leadership degree program that attracts high-caliber energy professionals. GEM is designed to fit with career ambitions as well as busy personal lives.
We understand that graduate school is a big decision and we’re here to help. The webinar will be moderated by GEM Graduate Enrollment Advisor Nate Holt.

GEM’s next class starts in January 2017 and there is still time to apply. The January application deadline is December 15.


GEM offers numerous admissions events to connect prospective students to GEM alumni and current students throughout the year.

Aside from our events, we can easily connect interested prospective students with a member of the GEM community (student, alumni, faculty or staff) for a one-on-one meeting to answer any questions.

Join us at any admissions event or Speaker Series​ event to learn about the opportunities the program has to offer.
