First of all, Happy New Year!!
I recently earned a full merit scholarship to Rice University! I live in Houston (energy capital of the world) and energy is huge here. I'm originally from Mexico, and the Mexican government is seriously considering privatizing oil which can open lots of opportunities in the future.
When people ask me what area of study I plan on pursuing, my response is energy. The truth is that I do not know too much about the industry. I would love to learn what it is that an energy MBA does. I plan on talking to Rice alums who work in the industry, but are there any books, articles, etc that you may recommend?
Congratulations!! I'm an owl, too (went there for my bachelor's).
You're going to love it!
