Economics of the Energy Value Chain (EEVC) (Finance), Certificate

C.T. Bauer College of Business  > Economics of the Energy Value Chain (EEVC) (Finance), Certificate


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.


You must be a current Bauer graduate (MBA or MS Finance) student to enroll in any of our certificate programs.
