Program description

Our unique Masters programme combines the disciplines of Economics and Law to equip students with the necessary economic and legal skills required for a successful career in the oil and gas industry or governmental organisations. We recognise that the global oil & gas sector has evolved in a complex environment characterised by various influential factors such as; government-controlled hydrocarbons, financial markets, the global crude oil market, economic uncertainty, licensing, taxation and contracts. These crucial factors bear significant influence on decision making in projects and in government policies, therefore a comprehensive knowledge of the relative economics and law is essential.

The University of Aberdeen is an established leader in teaching and research in the field of energy, and our new MSc builds on our considerable strengths in these areas. Given the success of the existing relative programs such as the MSc Petroleum, Energy Economics and Finance, LLM International Commercial Law and LLM in Oil and Gas and Energy and the profile of energy specialists in the University, we can clearly claim to be experts in these fields.

Students will benefit from interacting with world leading researchers in the field of energy economics and law such as Professor Alex Kemp, OBE and from access to the Aberdeen Institute of Energy, powered by the University and our strong links with industry and policymakers.
