Our programme is taught by experts in the field of energy and petroleum economics, petroleum geoscience and other internationally recognized specialist staff from Economics, Finance, Accountancy, Engineering, Geology and Management. Our programme is specifically designed for graduates who wish to develop analytical and problemsolving skills from economics and finance enabling them to embark and develop their careers in business and government within the petroleum industries. The course addresses the increasing need for economic and finance skills required for the complex nature of decision-making in these industries. Our students will develop the skills to allow them to analyse a range of economic and finance issues relevant to these industries, such as investment analysis, Government petroleum policies, decommissioning, energy demand. Aberdeen is one of the World’s Oil Capitals, with a very high population of oil industry professionals and international oil companies in all sectors, with the University of Aberdeen the premier location for industry contact for research and education. Our students will develop a broad knowledge and understanding of the petroleum industries through interaction with industry located in and around Aberdeen.
