The curriculum focuses on developing a depth of knowledge and wide range of skills in the areas of leadership, business management, finance, marketing as well as energy and  resource management. Food, water, raw materials, non-renewable and renewable energy sources are studied in detail, along with conservation and exploitation issues. Students are exposed to worldwide energy markets and the need for reserve management, further exploitation and improved technology for all energy sources are examined.
