Bauer Graduate Certificates

Economics of the Energy Value Chain (EEVC)

You must be a current Bauer graduate student (MBA or MS) to earn one of our graduate certificates listed on this page.
Energy Financial Management

Students interested in developing a broad economic perspective on the energy business should consider this Certificate. The courses offered should be very helpful to engineers and other functional specialists seeking to develop managerial perspective suitable for executive responsibilities

The Certificate exposes students to both the ‘physical' side of the energy business, i.e. what is the nature of the assets, operations and products produced, and to the economics of each component of the EVC. Students will be able to gain an understanding of how the energy firms' activities ‘add value' along the chain, e.g. how basic refinery units upgrade crude oil and how more complex conversion and chemical units upgrade basic products into higher value fuels or chemicals. The role of transportation logistics and trading will also be considered. The courses which compose this Certificate are: The Energy Value Chain, Upstream Economics and Downstream/Petrochemical Economics.
