About MSc Oil & Gas Trade Management at Regent's University London

This new programme has been designed in consultation with oil and gas industry leaders. It is unique in the UK as it focuses on the ‘downstream’ side of the industry - the management of trade in oil and gas products.

Three key themes of risk management, strategy, and leadership are woven throughout the programme.

You will explore the process of trade in oil and gas from the perspectives of both buyer and seller and develop the practical problem-solving skills needed for success in a growth industry.

You will also examine corporate social responsibility, and the environmental, sustainability and social issues involved.

Why should I choose this programme?

Today’s energy sector demands talented, highly trained individuals who can demonstrate leadership, strategic thinking and the ability to manage risk in complex business situations.
