Course content

This unique and widely recognised Masters programme combines the core disciplines of Economics and Law to equip you with the essential skills required to pursue a successful career either in the global oil and gas industry or in related governmental organisations.

The global oil and gas sector operates in a complex environment characterised by various influential factors such as government-controlled hydrocarbons, financial markets, the global crude oil market, economic uncertainty, licensing, taxation and contracts. These factors have a significant influence on both investment decision-making and government policy-making, so a comprehensive knowledge of related economics and law is essential. On this course, you will gain the real-world knowledge you need to enhance your career opportunities in legal and financial oil and gas contexts.

The University of Aberdeen is a global leader in teaching and research in the field of energy and this MSc builds on our considerable strengths in these areas. Our Business School is home to two relevant and internationally recognised research centres: the Aberdeen Centre for Research in Energy Economics and Finance and the Aberdeen University Centre for Energy Law. Studying here, you will benefit from interacting with leading researchers in the field of energy economics and law – including one of the world’s best recognised energy experts, Professor Alex Kemp OBE – and with a broad network of national and multi-national employers through our visiting speaker programme.
