When you select an MBA program, you are not just choosing your learning environment but are also committing to becoming part of a community. Each Thursday, we offer a window into life “beyond the MBA classroom” at a top business school.
Held each spring since 2006, the MIT Energy Conference attracts technologists, investors, entrepreneurs, policy makers, and energy professionals who are defining the world’s energy future. The conference theme in 2015 was “Global Energy Shifts: Disruption and Convergence.” The event’s numerous keynote speakers included the chairman and CEO of C3 Energy, the CEO and president of SunEdison Inc., and the chief strategy officer of Exelon Corporation. Panel sessions focused on such topics as “Energy Efficiency: Our Greatest Untapped Natural Resource,” “Unconventional Resources: Present to Future, U.S. to Global,” and “Funding Moonshots and Fostering Global Collaboration in Energy R&D.”
