UT Austin Hosts Energy Week

From February 16th to 20th, University of Texas at Austin McCombs School of Business will be hosting the UT Energy Week. They will be examining global energy issues through seminars and lectures from experts in government, non-profit, academia and industry.

UT Energy Week brings together various schools, universities and student organizations from all over the University of Texas to examine vital energy issues facing the world today. With the Houston Metro area being one of the energy capitals of the country, you can bet there will be many smart minds present.

The keystone event will be the inaugural symposium of the Kay Bailey Hutchison Center for Energy, Law and Business. This event will happen on Friday February 20 and the topic of discussion will be The Geopolitics of Oil and Gas in the Americas.

While a career in energy may not be the path you want to pursue with your MBA, the energy space is a shifting landscape of which MBA students would do well to be aware. The energy experts at McCombs School of Business  think UT and McCombs are on the right track to providing solutions to energy problems that face the world.

Sheril Kirshenbaum, the Energy Poll Director at McCombs, told Adrienne Dawson of McCombs Today:

“Energy is inherently related to every significant challenge of the 21st century. At the UT Energy Poll, we track American attitudes on energy issues from pricing and consumer behavior to climate change and hydraulic fracturing. The results provide an impartial and authoritative source of public perspectives on energy to inform and guide discussion, business planning, and policy development.”
