Course content

The MSc Oil and Gas Finance course is a one year postgraduate course designed to offer advanced study of finance in relation to oil and gas projects and ventures.
With growing demand for energy and a challenging external financial environment, the course responds to the need for specialist finance professionals versed in financial decision making in the petroleum industry. Building on RGU’s expertise in oil and gas and close association with the industry in Aberdeen (including a new Oil and Gas Institute), the course is intended to provide students with the opportunity to develop the relevant knowledge and skills to engage with the industry’s complex finance issues.
It emphasises practical problem-solving, analytical financial modelling and essential transferrable skills in researching, quantifying, evaluating and managing the financial risks and rewards of oil and gas investments. The course is a useful preparation for a career in the oil and gas industry and related roles in energy and financial markets.
