Course Summary

This course is for economists and non-economists who want to understand the economics of the international petroleum and energy industries.

The programme aims to provide an intellectually challenging academic programme of study, which will demand of the student the ability to analyse, synthesise and evaluate key theoretical concepts and practical applications in energy with an emphasis on the economic dimensions of the subject. The world's long-term economic development depends on the existence of efficient, innovative and creative energy and resources industries. These in turn rely on individuals who possess a sound grasp of their legal, economic, and technical and policy backgrounds.

The answer is a wide range of varied roles.
