WVSU | West Virginia State University
WVSU is the first institution of higher learning in the State of West Virginia to offer an energy management concentration in a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration.

WVSU’s program offers students the opportunity to bridge two important aspects of the oil and natural gas industry. Students enrolled gain the knowledge and skills needed to communicate with geologists and engineers in the oil and natural gas operations as well as the business expertise needed to properly manage personnel and accounts in the office.

This new program—linking these two vital aspects of the energy industry together—was developed when WVSU asked today’s energy industry CEO’s what the next generation of business leaders need to succeed in the expanding oil and natural gas industry.

In addition to the bachelor’s energy management concentration, WVSU offers a post-graduate certificate in energy management to help those college graduates currently working in the energy sector advance their career, or facilitate a career change, into the oil and gas industry.
