The GEM Program accepts experienced professionals who are looking to advance their career in the energy industry. GEM is a rigorous graduate program; therefore, the admissions committee highly favors candidates who demonstrate the ability and drive to successfully complete their Masters of Science (MS) in Global Energy Management.
