Master of Science In Global Energy Management
Relevant skills for future energy leaders
The Global Energy Management (GEM) Program at the University of Colorado Denver Business School is a hybrid-online Master of Science (MS) degree program exclusively designed to develop future leaders in the energy industry. Students who want an “energy MBA” enroll in GEM because it offers graduate business courses (accounting, finance, strategic management, marketing, economics, etc.) that are focused entirely on the energy industry. Earning an MS versus an MBA is a benefit to energy professionals because it differentiates them from masses earning a non-specific MBA. Upon completion of the program, students will gain the business acumen and leadership abilities needed to get that “next promotion” or “new position” in the energy industry. Students must complete 36 semester hour credits to earn their MS in GEM.
GEM was designed for the working professional and therefore offers three different ways to enroll: cohort degree, part-time degree, or non-degree seeking. In addition, GEM's hybrid-online delivery method allows busy professionals from around the world to earn their master's degree wherever they work or live. At the beginning of each quarter, students travel to Denver for four days (Friday - Monday) to meet for classes. GEM students then return home and complete the remainder of their coursework using innovative technologies in online collaboration. All GEM courses are delivered via the hybrid-online format.
