**Why choose this course?**

There can be no doubt that the oil and gas industry is big business; in 2015, capital investment in the UK offshore oil and gas industry alone was £11.6 billion and the industry spent £8.2 billion operating its assets.

Expected to remain as a major contributor to the economy of many developed and developing regions, the oil and gas industry needs effective managers who not only appreciate the financial drivers and pressures, but can also understand and interpret the effects of heightened safety regulations, policy changes, trade laws and global economics.

Our course aims to equip graduates with the skills and knowledge to do just that; providing a comprehensive advanced level introduction to the international operation of the upstream and downstream industry, exploring the key challenges and emerging technologies that are influencing exploration and production. So, if you are interested in a professional career in the energy and hydrocarbon industry or are already working in the industry and looking to update your skills, this professionally accredited course will benefit you regardless of whether you come from a technical, non-technical or commercial background.

Course highlights include the use of industry standard simulation facilities and software, which support real-time scenarios linked to the management of industry-related emergencies. Furthermore, you can choose to specialise in one of four routes: Quality, Health, Safety and Environment; Finance and Investment; Law and Policy; and Technology Management.
