Master of Science in Energy

The Meinders School of Business Energy Programs are pace-setting programs for future leaders throughout the energy industry. Whether an individual is in a career in energy finance, accounting, geology, engineering, land, government relations, communications or any other component of the energy industry, both degrees provide an education that will further enhance an energy professional’s future success. The programs offer a unique component, connecting students from around the country with local, in-class students, through our distance education program.

Both degrees were created through the collaborative efforts of Dean Agee, an industry veteran, executives in energy, and the Meinders’ team. We continue to collaborate with leaders in the energy sector far beyond Oklahoma City as the success of our programs grows. The Meinders School of Business, an AACSB accredited school, ranks in the top 4.5% of business schools in the world. As the only graduate programs accredited by the AAPL, the Energy Legal Studies and Energy Management degrees provide rigorous, graduate-level education for those who seek to serve in positions of leadership within the energy industry. These programs have also been ranked by U.S. News & World Report as one of the best online graduate business programs in the country for three years in a row.

Educating Today’s Talent to be Tomorrow’s Leaders

The Master of Science in Energy Management degree provides a challenging energy-centered, graduate business curriculum. Students have the opportunity to collaboratively utilize these functional concepts in the capstone experience. The curriculum is taught in an applied approach by seasoned faculty with years of experience in their field providing a wealth of knowledge and a unique perspective.

Energy Management concentrates on the core business elements of the energy industry. Energy professionals seeking to advance their careers within a company or those seeking to start their own private venture often find their previous education did not provide them with the necessary business fundamentals of management, accounting, finance, economics, communications, and operations.

Flexibility for Working Professionals 

The Energy Management graduate degree enables energy professionals to continue meeting the demands of their career and other commitments while earning a highly-respected degree from one of the best business schools in the world. Cohorts meet one night a week on campus or through our distance education format.

Energy professionals understand the collaborative nature of success in the industry amongst all the disciplines and how each discipline regularly encounters the legal environment of accounting, acquisitions & divestitures, surface and sub-surface property rights, regulatory compliance, infrastructure, and much more.  Energy Legal Studies focuses on the legal principles that underlie the entire life-cycle and scope of any element one may follow through the industry and all that it touches along the way: contract law, property law, environmental law, administrative/regulatory law, corporate law, and oil and gas law.  Along with acquiring this significant, substantive knowledge, the Energy Legal Studies track enhances students’ abilities to write, speak, and think critically, and to engage in successful negotiations in their careers in energy.
