Course content

The aim of the MSc programme is to prepare participants for managerial, advisory, and academic positions in the natural resources sector, particularly the mineral resource domain in both the private and governmental sectors.

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 the mineral resource industries with an emphasis on the economic dimensions of the subject. This will prepare participants for success in the rapidly evolving and highly competitive global business climate that characterises the mineral resources industries.

All modules will be delivered on the campus of the University of Dundee in face-to-face mode. Self-study makes up a considerable proportion of the student's learning experience. Formal and informal group work occurs in some modules.
