Two New Courses Take Students to Washington, D.C. and London

March 5, 2011

International Course
This September, fourteen GEM students enrolled in GEM’s new international course and travelled to Britain for a week-long immersion in the London energy industry.  Led by Professor Herb Rubenstein, students from Cohorts II and III met with a diverse group of industry entities, some of which included: Renewable Energy Foundation, UK Atomic Energy Commission, Department of Energy and Climate Change, Nighthawk Energy, World Energy Council, McGrigors, Ernst and Young, Pinnacle Energy, Waggener Edstrom, Siemens, and The Energy Institute. These organizations were incredibly impressed by the GEM students and program – the networking and relationships created will be a huge asset to all who attended. The international course will travel back to London in September of 2011 providing students from Cohort III and Cohort IV the opportunity to gain a global perspective on the energy industry.

Washington DC Course
In March, GEM’s first Washington D.C. course was taught by Professor William Fox.  Thirteen students from Cohorts I and II visited and held meetings with representatives from:  the Supreme Court, Library of Congress, US Department of Energy, Holland & Hart LLP, and Focus Investment Banking Group.  In addition, students had the opportunity to discuss energy policy with Representative Jared Polis and Senator James Inhofe. The course ended with a reception and presentation from Hon. William Froehlich, Administrative Judge, Nuclear Regulatory Commission at the Cosmos Club. The two-day DC course will be offered again in March of 2011.
