Why choose this course?
Our MSc Oil and Gas Accounting and Management is a flexible programme specifically designed to prepare you for a management career within the oil and gas sector.
Aimed at well-qualified students from a wide range of backgrounds, you’ll develop relevant high-level knowledge, understanding, and skills under three headings. First, meeting organisational goals in the oil and gas (and related) sectors through the use of financial and accounting tools and techniques, allied to capabilities in human and physical resource management. Second, rising to strategic challenges in the sector through a better understanding of the international competitive environment, viewed through the lens of advanced studies in economics, corporate finance, and enterprise. Third, engaging in critical analysis of current practice within the sector, using relevant business and organisational research methods.
As well as developing capabilities in the above three areas, the programme fosters self-confidence in developing and presenting efficient, logical solutions to complex problems in the oil and gas sector. This is done by discussion, debate and analysis of business issues and problems in an international environment. This format allows consideration of social, political, cultural and technological dimensions of the sector, that go beyond formal techniques alone, thus embedding business decision-making in a wider socio-political context.
