C.T. Bauer College of Business  > Department of Finance  > Finance, B.B.A. - Global Energy Management - Professional Program Track and Certificate

The Global Energy Management - Professional Program (GEM-PP) is the most powerful and comprehensive blend of technical and business skills available at the undergraduate and graduate level. Students in this program obtain a BBA in Finance and receive a Global Energy Management - Professional Program certificate by meeting the specified course requirements, and having a 3.25 or higher cumulative grade point average to declare GEM-PP for the certificate. The certificate requires 30 hours of coursework unique to the B.B.A. requirements, identified by a carrot sign (^) below: 15 hours of math instead of 6 hours, a minimum of 9 hours of life and physical sciences instead of 6 hours, and 12 hours of energy courses in finance, and 6 hours of energy-related advanced electives in business or approved substitutions.

Meant to begin at the freshman year and carry through graduation, the GEM Professional Program requires a higher level math and science core than the traditional BBA in Finance. In addition to the required business core course work, GEM-PP students take all their advanced-elective courses in energy business.
