Degree Requirements

The Master of Science in Energy Management (MS EM) is a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) degree program (18-24 months) at the Naveen Jindal School of Management that prepares students for careers in energy companies including oil, gas, renewable energy and electricity, banks and financial institutions that trade energy commodities, energy-focused consulting firms, and major energy consuming corporations.

The curriculum provides a practical learning component through projects developed by industry members that teach students how to value energy companies and projects, develop operating strategies, negotiate contracts and manage energy-specific risks. The development of the program was motivated by a high concentration of energy companies in the Dallas/Fort Worth area and the UT Dallas aim to address skill shortages in industries critical to the Texas economy. Students must maintain a 3.0 grade-point average (GPA) in both core courses and in aggregate courses to qualify for the MS degree.
