David Fountain, Duke Energy, discusses the value of an Energy MBA degree at UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School.

“This is a terrific moment to be involved in energy. Opportunities abound on many fronts, in traditional oil and gas and renewables. All are making major contributions to reinvigorating the economy. The UNC Kenan-Flagler Energy Concentration prepares you for your role in this renaissance by focusing on the problems energy executives address each day. Our industry veteran faculty will equip you with the technical knowledge needed to decode energy issues and show you through case work how to apply your skill set to the industry’s challenges. If you then go to work for an energy company, you will go to work on issues and problems you will already have seen, discussed and analyzed.”
