Tulane partners with EMI and CME to launch energy trading courses

Freeman’s new partnership with EMI and CME Group will bring the school’s acclaimed energy trading simulations to energy professionals in New Orleans, Chicago and Houston.

This fall, the Freeman School is teaming up with the Energy Management Institute and CME Group to offer a new series of training courses for energy and trading professionals.

The two-day seminars will be offered in Chicago, Houston and New Orleans and will cover industry fundamentals, the latest electronic trading software and simulations, and advanced trading strategies that businesses can use to maximize value while managing risk.

Courses will be taught by professors from the Freeman School, energy experts from EMI and professionals with CME Group. EMI is the world’s leading provider of educational programs, market data and advisory services for energy professionals. CME Group is the world’s leading and most diverse derivatives marketplace.

“Over the last decade, we’ve put together an innovative curriculum designed to help our graduates start contributing immediately at energy, banking and trading firms,” says James W. McFarland, executive director of the Tulane Energy Institute. “This new collaboration with CME Group and EMI will enable us to bring the one-of-a-kind electronic trading simulations we’ve developed at Tulane to energy professionals across the country.”

Using the latest commercial trading software from Thomson Reuters and Trading Technologies International, which features the industry’s most sophisticated trading simulation platforms, students will be able to trade from more than 22 live exchange feeds, including CME Group exchanges and NYSE.

Initial course offerings will include Natural Gas Trading Strategies and Simulations, Oil Trading Strategies and Simulations and The North American Wholesale Electric Marketplace: Strategies and Simulations.
