Course Summary

Today more than ever, there is a growing demand for versatile managers in the globalised natural resources and commodities industries. These industries rely on the close collaboration of scientists, engineers, analysts, financiers and investors. An integrated understanding of resource genesis, development, production, supply and socio-environmental footprint is no longer desirable; it is essential. Students will be well versed in subsurface and surface energy and mineral industries. They will be an effective communicator, develop an understanding of geology and engineering, be aware of their socioeconomic responsibilities, will be able to operate within international constraints on opportunities and will have strong managerial skills. They will have insight into the technical complexity of the challenges faced.


The Global Management of Natural Resources MSc will prepare graduates for highly skilled, multidisciplinary managerial jobs in the natural resources sector. Recent university graduates will gain a global perspective on the natural resources sector. Mid-career professionals already employed will expand their range of expertise.


Successful graduates will have wide knowledge of the energy and natural resources industries, have strong managerial and communication skills, be aware and respectful of social responsibilities, and operate within national and international constraints.
