Public Utility Regulation and Economics Graduate Certificate

This is a professional educational program designed for post-baccalaureate students pursuing a career in the utility sector with an electric utility company, natural gas utility, water distribution utility, or a government agency regulating these types of companies. Students with educational backgrounds in accounting, government, finance, business administration, public administration, engineering, law, and economics are usually well suited to pursue a career in this industry and are encouraged to consider the program. The program provides advanced technical instruction on utility industry analysis and prepares students for the rigors of utility regulatory methods, policy, and analytical applications.

For most PURE courses, distance education students attend class at the same time as in-class students via the internet. The PURE certificate courses will transfer into the Masters of Economics program, satisfying up to 12 credits of the 30 credit Masters minimum requirement.
