Petroleum Management

The MBA with a concentration in Petroleum Management (MBA-PM) combines a unique curriculum of master’s level business and engineering courses enabling U.S. Naval Supply Corps officers to transition to billets as fuels specialists. While the interdisciplinary program is specially designed to meet the requirements of active duty military officers, it is open to any student who meets the admission requirements. Applicants to the program are generally pre-screened by the U.S. Navy. More than 75 Navy officers have graduated from the dual-degree program since it was created by the School of Business in the early 1980s. For more information, consult this pdfcurriculum guide.
