Course summary

Who is it for?

Your peers on the Energy, Trade and Finance postgraduate course will be on average, 24, with a minimum 2.1 or equivalent bachelor’s degree. It’s likely you will have a few years’ work experience either through an internship of full-time employment. You needn’t have any prior knowledge of energy, commodities, shipping or finance, although you should be comfortable with quantitative methods (mathematics and statistics).

Objectives:

You’ll emerge from this master's course fully equipped to operate effectively in this highly competitive international industry. You’ll gain a solid foundation in energy economics, markets and trading, and be able to formulate strategy for fossil fuels, electricity and renewables. Your studies will encompass energy transportation, especially seaborne and are rounded off with extensive study of finance and financial markets and essential transferrable skills in accounting and IT. You can complement your core modules with optional modules and, if you wish, an independent research project.

The course is offered through the Costas Grammenos Centre for Shipping, Trade and Finance. The Centre is widely recognised and valued by practitioners and academics. Since the launch of the Centre in 1983, its three primary aims remain the same: (i) Offer high quality teaching in its three interlinked disciplines of shipping, trade and finance, (ii) Produce high quality research in these areas, and (iii) Create a forum for international dialogue between academia, industry and government and to link decision makers. This multi-disciplinary approach ensures that you are equipped with competitive skills and knowledge in the areas of energy, shipping, commodity trade, finance and investment.

This course is accredited by the UK Energy Institute (EI). During the academic year, you have free membership to the EI, receive a free monthly publication and have discounted access to networking events for graduates seeking employment in the energy sector.

The MSc in Energy, Trade and Finance programme is also accredited by the Global Association of Risk Professionals (GARP). GARP is an industry-leading professional association dedicated to preparing individuals and organisations to make better informed risk decisions. The status is granted to top institutions whose degree content incorporates at least 70% of GARP’s Energy Risk Professional (ERP) Body of Knowledge, the first leading and global designation for energy professionals. The academic team works closely with GARP to ensure that our curriculum meets the latest global industry needs.
