The importance of well-functioning energy markets to the global economy cannot be exaggerated. As the energy mix employed by countries around the world becomes increasingly diversified, there also arises the need to develop a workforce suited to this dynamic sector. This particular MSc programme specifically aims to prepare students who are interested in career opportunities in the finance departments of energy utilities, energy/commodity trading desks of financial and energy firms, energy consultancies, as well as relevant government departments.
As one of Europe’s leading financial centres, Edinburgh uniquely combines a dynamic business community with its status as World Heritage site. Located in the heart of Edinburgh, the Business School is perfectly placed to engage with the local, national and international business community. The Business School itself also benefits from a very diverse student intake in particular its MSc programmes with 58 nationalities represented in 2014/15. This adds to the learning experience and also gives students the added benefit of a global alumni network.
Throughout the year we hold a number of webinars for potential students. On the 25th November 2015 we will be holding a specific webinar on the Energy Finance and Markets MSc. This is a chance for those interested in the programme to ask the Programme Director any questions you may have.
