THE TIDE HAS TURNED in the Texas energy industry. After a two-year crisis, the market is now poised for new growth. Meantime, Texas leads the nation in wind energy production, and gets high marks for solar as well. Much of the excitement is located in the Midland area, where just last fall the U.S. Geological Survey announced the largest estimate of continuous oil ever assessed — in the Permian Basin. That region is also home to vast wind and solar farms. It's a fertile moment for those interested in pursuing a career in energy — whether traditional or green. And McCombs is at the forefront of energy business education in Texas, with energy-focused degree opportunities at both the graduate and undergraduate levels, as well as extracurricular resources in the Kay Bailey Hutchison Center for Energy, Law and Business, and the new Sustainability and Social Innovation Initiative.

McCombs offers: 

• Undergraduate Energy Program

• Energy Finance Undergraduate Major

• Houston MBA Program

• Energy Finance MBA Concentration

• Clean Tech MBA Concentration  

• Clean Tech MBA Fellowship

• One-year Master’s in Energy Management (forthcoming)

From the spring 2017 issue of McCOMBS, the magazine for alumni and friends of the McCombs School of Business.
