About

The Oil and Gas Enterprise Management programme of the University of Aberdeen provides the essential commercial, legal and scientific skills needed to progress to senior management level positions in the international hydrocarbons industry.

Overview

At a Glance

This long-established interdisciplinary programme develops your business, legal and technological skills to provide a thorough understanding of the entire oil and gas lifecycle, from exploration & production (E&P) through to commercialisation, within the broad economic and legal context of the oil and gas industry.

The Oil and Gas Enterprise Management programme of the University of Aberdeen is taught by industry-based experts, who bring with them the latest industry trends and techniques to ensure that what you learn on this programme is relevant to the needs of the upstream oil and gas industry today. Industry-led teaching is further supported by input from researchers and academic experts from across the University of Aberdeen, including from the School of Geosciences, Business School, and School of Law.

The University’s location at the heart of the oil and gas industry means students benefit from direct access to industry, not only through lectures from industry experts, but also through field trips, site visits, industry-supported projects as well as numerous other networking and careers events that take place in Aberdeen.

A key feature of this programme is the residential field course, where students visit a number of industry locations across the North East of Scotland, including for example, manufacturing installations for offshore exploration, oil terminals, and various supply chain companies that provide key services for the oil and gas sector in Aberdeen.

For the final project, you can choose to focus on any element of the programme, from the commercial, legal, scientific or technical aspects of the oil and gas industry, depending on their particular interests and career ambitions.

Every year, the programme attracts students from around the world and from a variety of academic backgrounds, including geology, business, law, engineering, and economics as well as graduates of other disciplines who have relevant industry experience.
