From staff reports
Michael Schor, lecturer of business management at Ohio University Zanesville, will offer a course entitled, “Commercial Aspects of Energy Development,” during summer semester.
“The ability to see opportunities, as well as to understand risks related to the energy exploration and development, is critical for the emerging workforce,” Schor said. “It is important for our graduates to be comfortable talking about this timely topic with constituents in the region as well as with executives who may visit from out of town.”
The course curriculum is designed to include a breadth of information related to the energy boom in the region. Participants will become familiar with the commercial implication of oil and gas exploration, the global market for energy, and a general overview of the technical aspects of energy development and production.
In addition, participants will discuss issues related to the sale, acquisition and resale of mineral rights and related issues of cash flow from sales of rights and royalties. Also included will be a discussion of the broader political and economic environment in which these activities are taking place.
While the class is designed for Applied Management students, Schor is extending registration to anyone who is interested in learning about the impact the energy boom will have on their business or industry.
The blended course will meet on Monday evenings May 12; June 2, 16 and 30; July 14 and 28; and Aug. 4, with a blended format using BlackBoard. For more information, contact Schor at Schor@ohio.edu or call (740) 699-2488.
