Intro

We are sorry to advise you that this course is no longer available.  Please view our postgraduate course list.

What you study

Your core course will include essential foundation areas of management accounting, financial accounting and finance. The second semester further develops the international elements and deepens your knowledge of the oil and gas sector. Throughout the course the emphasis is placed on contemporary and emerging energy topics which you will often explore through case studies. You will also develop your research and interpersonal skills via our integrative seminar course which will expose you to the latest thinking in this area.

How you learn
In addition to attending lectures, you will be required to contribute actively to group and seminar discussions.  You will be able to develop your own specialist knowledge of the oil and gas sector through highly relevant and contemporary modules and your dissertation, which will develop and deepen your knowledge. You will work in teams, prepare case analysis or develop scenarios, and deliver presentations using professional tools.

How you are assessed
Assessment is diverse to reflect the broad range of knowledge and skills you will develop throughout the course, and also to recognise the diverse learning style preferences our students bring to our course. You will be assessed through conventional examinations and coursework, and through presentations, team work and skills-based tasks.
