This MSc develops the knowledge and analytical skills needed to equip students for a successful career in the energy sector; whether this be in energy policy analysis, energy trading or energy planning. Energy security, energy prices and the environmental impacts of energy supply and use – including links to climate change problems – are key aspects of the global environment at present, and will become more pressing in the future. This course is aimed at students from a variety of backgrounds, including students with no previous training in economics or finance.
On completing the course, you should have a good knowledge of how economic analysis can help understand problems related to energy; be able to analyse alternative energy policy options in terms of benefits and costs; have a good understanding of world energy markets; and be able to analyse the risks associated with energy options. You will have acquired the skills needed to structure, analyse and evaluate energy-related problems.
