Inspiring Confidence in the Leaders of Tomorrow

The Texas A&M University Trading, Risk & Investment Program (TRIP) is a strategic alliance that partners the Mays Business School at Texas A&M with the energy industry in Houston. The purpose is to develop finance students with business knowledge and prepare ethical leaders in a global society. Since the inception of the program, there have been five graduating classes with an average of 18 students per class; the small group ensures every student has maximum access to professors and industry professionals in order to succeed.

Total Invests Time, Talent & Treasure

As a founding partner of the TRIP, Total has contributed to advancing the critical skills of university students as well as offer unparalleled opportunity for real-world experience in energy trading through hands-on internship experience, visits to our industrial sites, lectures led by Total professionals and case-study projects.

Since 2008, Total has been an active board member to help steer curriculum and devotes Time, Talent and Treasure. Our commitment ensures education and job training are priorities for our most precious resource - people.
