Welcome to the Energy Community

The energy industry has exciting opportunities for MIT Sloan students in both traditional and new
sectors, and is in need of specialists in all business functions—from finance to entrepreneurship.

Types of Energy
With so many different opportunities in energy, it is helpful to understand the types of energy sources
that drive business in this sector. Most energy companies have built their business around one or more
of the following energy sources:

  • Coal, Oil & Natural Gas
    Because these resources have so many different uses, there are a variety of exciting careers
    opportunities. Companies tend to be very large, with domestic and international opportunities as well as
    extensive budgets. There are traditional roles, such as corporate or project finance and marketing; or
    emerging opportunities such as technology development and corporate social responsibility.
  • Nuclear Energy 
    According to the Nuclear Energy Institute, nuclear energy produces 20.2% of electricity in the United
    States. Currently there is a strong political push for new plants and safer technology, increasing the
    number of opportunities in this sector. The main career paths in nuclear energy are: technology
    development, manufacturing and supply chain development, and plant construction and management.
    A successful candidate often has an undergraduate degree in engineering and strong communication
  • Renewable Energy 
    According to the EIA, renewable energy has the highest rate of growth of all the energy sectors.
    Currently the most widely used resources are wind, solar, geothermal, water, biomass and fuel cells.
    This sector is growing rapidly, with high demand for those who can add value in power generation,
    investment management, entrepreneurship, and supply-chain management.
