Course Summary

This course is ideal for people with no prior experience of energy management, as well those already working in the industry. The course provides a comprehensive overview of the entire ‘value chain’ – production, infrastructure and energy use – so you’ll be equipped to work in senior roles in any area of hydrocarbon energy management. The course has been designed in partnership with the Energy Institute, the globally recognised professional body for the sector, and will be accredited at the level of Chartered Energy Manager, giving you a professional qualification and membership of the institute. It’s also taught by well-connected experts, with global links to leading industry professionals and major energy companies. This, coupled with the fact that you’ll be studying in the heart of London’s most thriving business district, means you’ll graduate with a huge head start in a multi-trillion dollar industry. This course combines specialist insight into the oil and gas industry with broader training in business management. You'll be taught how to harness your entrepreneurial spirit by developing new products and businesses; how to manage risk and finance in the context of international markets; and how to overcome common problems that business owners and managers face. At the same time, you'll be introduced to current themes and trends in the oil and gas industry, gaining valuable insight into the management of energy from upstream to downstream. Everything you learn will be rooted in the contemporary business landscape, drawing on real, practical examples and case studies so you'll be able to enter the industry upon graduation with a solid understanding of issues, challenges and opportunities that the sector faces. This programme has been specifically designed to give you the skills, knowledge and connections to work in senior positions throughout the oil and gas industry, as well as in other energy-related positions, nationally and internationally.
