The global energy system is undergoing a process of rapid change. Escalating demand, constraints on supplies, increasing energy prices, regulatory pressures to reduce carbon emissions, changing demographics and patterns of energy use and supply, mean that industry, economies and societies face complex challenges and uncertainties that could become more extreme in the future.
Both government and industry need to be able to understand and adapt to this changing context, managing these transformations where possible, exploiting emerging opportunities, and acting to reduce risk. The changing energy landscape requires professionals with a global knowledge of the complex technical, economic, geopolitical and policy issues facing the global energy system.
The MSc in Global Energy Management is aimed at producing high flying energy professionals. Students will gain a rigorous analytical training and in-depth real world knowledge of the global energy system in all its facets, giving them an unrivalled edge in the energy job market.
The GEM masters degree is offered by the Department of Economics. The degree is specifically designed to train the next generation of energy professionals. A 12-month taught Masters degree, GEM combines academic rigour with exposure to industry and other experts, plus hands-on training in the management of energy-related issues and problems.
Core taught courses are designed around the latest academic research on the issues facing energy managers today.
