The Meinders School of Business will offer a fully online program for all energy students in fall 2019.

As with almost all leading programs, two on-campus residencies, at the beginning and end of the program are required. These short but critical residencies allow for students to network with fellow cohort members, alums, faculty, and energy industry leaders during the two, two-day sessions.

The M.S. Energy Legal Studies and M.S. Energy Management degrees provide rigorous, graduate-level education for those who seek to serve in positions of leadership within the energy industry. Whether an individual is in a career in energy finance, accounting, geology, engineering, land, government relations, alternative resources, communications or any other sector in energy, both degrees provide an education that will further enhance an energy professional’s future success.

With respect to the two degrees, the importance of the M.S. Energy Legal Studies degree is growing as the regulatory and legal aspects of the energy industry are expanding. Similarly, the value the M.S. Energy Management degree offers is increasing as finance, economic modeling, operations and more are critical to the evolving structure of the energy industry.

Both degrees were created through the collaborative efforts of Dean Agee, an industry veteran, executives in energy, and the Meinders’ team. Under the leadership of Director Meredith Wegener, J.D., LL.M., Meinders Energy Programs continue to collaborate with leaders in the energy sector far beyond the region as the success of our programs expands.

The Meinders School of Business, an AACSB accredited school, ranks in the top 4.5% of business schools in the world. Oklahoma City University was the first university with graduate programs accredited by the AAPL. The M.S. Energy Legal Studies and M.S. Energy Management degrees provide great opportunities in an evolving industry. These degrees have been ranked once again by U.S. News & World Report as one of the best online graduate business programs in the country.
