The Master of Energy Economics (MEECON) offers graduate level education that emphasizes applying economic principles to analyze and understand commercial and other influences on energy markets and enables graduates to communicate valuable insights arising from that approach. The program offers practical training for energy markets analysts working in government, the private sector, and international organizations. Upon completion of the 12-month MEECON, participants will be able to produce insightful analyses of energy markets to inform such things as capital asset decisions, firm strategic direction, and future market orientation.
Rice is uniquely positioned to offer a Master of Energy Economics program built upon the programs in the Economics Department and the Baker Institute’s Center for Energy Studies (CES). MEECON provides a new avenue for energy professionals to develop human capital relevant for business development and/or strategic planning roles.
