GBUS 421 - ENERGY:Players,Mkts&ProjectFin
 Across the board, the energy industry is undergoing a dramatic transformation. This course is designed to provide students with the foundation for understanding the context in which these tectonic shifts are taking place-and ultimately the practical knowledge, tools, and literacy to embark on a career in energy.
Like the energy industry itself, the course is interdisciplinary in its approach and international in scope. We will cover the full value chain of oil, natural gas and power generation-from production and development to distribution and consumption. In the oil and natural gas section we look in depth at the players: the array of private and state-owned companies that form the backbone of the global energy industry. Students will also walk away with the fundamentals needed to understand and analyze global oil and gas markets. In the power generation section, we will explore the sources of electricity-wind, solar, nuclear, natural gas, coal, and hydropower-and key technology trends. The course will also offer a basic history and understanding of how the power generation, transmission, and distribution sectors work.
Students will conclude the course learning about project development and finance, using a real world renewable energy project example.
