Energy management prepared me for a constantly evolving energy sector with a multi-disciplinary approach to the common problems arising from the shifting challenges in today’s globalized planet. Themes of managing risk or understanding the economics of pipeline functions provided a broad understanding which rounded out my qualifications nicely. Because it’s fairly new to the Haskayne School of Business, the energy management concentration piqued my employer’s interest during interviews. They saw me as a well-rounded candidate with unique insights into the energy industry.
