RENOWNED petroleum industry economist Professor Alex Kemp is to lead the first of two new advanced Masters degree programmes at Aberdeen University.
Now, two new courses at the University of Aberdeen’s Graduate Business School have been specially assembled to provide the tools needed to climb the career ladder in business and Government.
The first 12-month programme at the university’s Graduate Business School will be the MSc International Business, Energy and Petroleum.
Professor Kemp will be supported by fellow experts in the field of energy and petroleum economics and petroleum geoscience, and others drawn from economics, finance, accountancy, engineering, geology and management.
“Our programme is specifically designed for graduates who wish to develop analytical and problem-solving skills from economics and finance, enabling them to embark and develop their careers in business and Government within the petroleum industries,” said Kemp in a statement.
“The course recognises the increasing need for economic and finance skills required for the complex nature of decision-making in these industries. Our students will develop the skills to allow them to analyse a range of economic and finance issues relevant to these industries, such as investment analysis, Government petroleum policies, decommissioning and energy demand.”
The second programme is a new MSc in International Business and Finance, also a 12-month course of full-time study. Programme leader will be Professor Euan Phimister.
The diet is aimed at Masters-level students who wish to pursue careers in multinational enterprises, banks and financial institutions, Government agencies and business consultancies.
