GEM Faculty

Integrating theory with field perspectives

Integrating academic theory with real-world business is a challenging task, especially when it is focused on such a dynamic and ever-evolving industry like energy. That’s why the GEM Program strives to recruit faculty with extensive experience in this dynamic and global sector. Over 87% of GEM professors bring their years of energy industry experience into the classroom and help students understand how theoretical concepts are applied in real-world business situations. Our professors’ experience spans five continents and averages over 15 years in the industry. All meet the rigorous AACSB requirements needed for this internationally recognized accreditation.
