Chicago, IL (PRWEB) February 14, 2011
GlobalView is proud to announce a significant contribution to the University of Houston’s Energy Trading Systems program, run by the C.T. Bauer College of Business. GlobalView has committed to providing access to its MarketView service as a tool for the course, giving students an introduction to the premier energy data management and analytics system. In addition, Eric Fishhaut, GlobalView’s SVP of Technology Strategy, along with other GlobalView staff, will serve as guest lecturers at the school.
The program is designed to familiarize undergraduate students with energy business processes related to physical and financial commodity procurement, trading and scheduling, risk in trading, and accounting while providing hands-on exposure to tools used by firms to manage these processes. Students will develop an understanding of how to leverage their knowledge and use the technology for profit and efficiency.
