Now in its third year, the J.P. Morgan Center for Commodities at the University of Colorado continues to yield innovative ways to immerse students in the study of commodities.
The center offers two credit programs: an undergraduate certificate in Commodities and Commodities specialization for MBA candidates. Additionally, the center has drawn funding to host multi-tiered research and professional development programs. Business School faculty members are working on multiple research projects and there are two lecture series focusing on commodities.
The J.P. Morgan Center for Commodities was created to present students with a comprehensive commodities education with equal focus on academic learning and research as well as its practical application. The center was designed to focus on academic programs, professional education, research and new business connections.
This year the center has developed three new course offerings and launched Global Commodity Issues, a monthly eJournal highlighting research of interest to practitioners. Additionally, the center has created a research council to formalize the process around directing its research resources.
