"Many of the Business of Energy courses discuss specifically the work I’m involved with, and there have even been current and retired NYISO employees that teach the courses. As a Market Design Specialist, part of my role is to understand how the markets operate and work to ensure reliability of the grid. The classes at Clarkson have been very beneficial in teaching that."
