Business & Management
Designed and developed in consultation with senior executives and directors of major organisations of the oil and gas industry, the MSc Oil & Gas Trade Management focuses on the ‘downstream’ side of the industry - the management of trade in oil and gas products.
Three key themes of risk management, strategy and added value are woven throughout the programme.
You will explore the process of trade in oil and gas from seller, buyer and intermediary perspectives, and develop the practical problem-solving skills needed for success in a growth industry.
You will also examine corporate social responsibility, and the environmental, sustainability and social issues involved.
