GEM Faculty Training on Friday, June 17th and Saturday, June 18th

June 20, 2011

On Friday, June 17th and Saturday, June 18th the Global Energy Management (GEM) Program at the University of Colorado Denver Business School hosted its second annual GEM Faculty Training Seminar at the Westin Downtown Denver Hotel.  This two day event provided the opportunity for faculty, alumni and the energy industry to review the syllabi and content for each GEM course in order to ensure:

  • Continuity and flow of subject matter across the entire curriculum
  • Representation of all energy sectors
  • Relevancy to current energy industry trends, challenges and recent events
  • Inclusion of the subject matter that future energy leaders need

In addition to reviewing the GEM curriculum, the faculty received continued training on the resources and software applications used to deliver this high-tech, hybrid-online degree program.   The faculty also collaborated on teaching best practices – sharing their experiences on effective methods of delivering the GEM curriculum.

About GEM:  The GEM Program is an 18 month, hybrid-online Masters of Science degree program designed to develop future leaders in the energy industry. GEM is similar to most “energy MBA” programs because if offers many of the same courses (accounting, finance, strategic management, economics, etc.);   BUT, the difference is that GEM courses are focused entirely on the energy industry.  GEM students gain the analytical and decision making tools needed to become an effective leader in the global energy economy.
