An Oil, Gas and Petroleum Management degree is designed to help students become knowledgeable managers in a position to advise how best a company can move forward in a particular aspect of the business. Unlike an engineering degree in the subject, a management programme will see you learn about topics such as accounting, economics and law within modules on logistics, project management and strategic management.
As the energy sector faces new challenges due to climate change and stiff competition from rival firms, the need for competent and informed management staff is crucial. This in turn results in higher than average starting salaries for graduates moving into the sector.
If you wish to work for one of the seven stars – the common term used to describe the world’s seven largest energy companies – then a Management degree in Oil, Gas and Petroleum is crucial to your long term career aspirations.
Oil, Gas and Petroleum Management graduates will initially apply for positions such as environmental consultant or research administrator. As you can gain experience, senior positions in operations and team leading will materialise and you will be further involved in the discovery and maintenance of the world’s oil and gas supply.
A minimum 2:2 undergraduate degree in the areas of geology, engineering and business or finance is required for an Oil, Gas and Petroleum Management postgraduate programme.
