Programme description

The importance of well-functioning energy markets to the global economy cannot be exaggerated. As the energy mix employed by countries around the world becomes increasingly diversified, there also arises the need to develop academic curricula designed to educate a new workforce suited to this dynamic sector.

MSc Energy Finance and Markets applies principles of financial and resource economics to prepare students for careers in old and new energy markets and industries, as well as the public sector.

Although the programme content relates to a wide array of energy sector career paths, the programme is specifically targeted at candidates who are interested in career opportunities in the finance departments of energy utilities, energy/commodity trading desks of financial and energy firms, energy consultancies, as well as relevant public, academic and third sector positions.

The programme incorporates significant input from energy industry and energy commodities trading executives. Students on the programme work with industry partners to develop cutting edge trading and project solutions within consultancy projects sponsored by energy firms and commodity trading desks of financial and oil and gas institutions.

MSc Energy Finance and Markets provides students with a vital understanding of how energy markets work and energy projects are appraised from both policy and financial economics perspectives. This is done through the delivery of a careful selection of academically grounded courses with significant practical elements.

The programme is designed for candidates who desire to pursue careers that require the understanding of the political economy and financial and resource economics issues in the energy industry. It is also suited to those who desire careers in the public sector and further study in the academia.

The courses offered provide strong academic conditioning for the students, but also offer relevant industry-facing applications. Given the importance of industry relevance, the programme regularly hosts key industry stakeholders as guest lecturers and master class leaders. Students are therefore readily exposed to practical application of financial modelling and analytical techniques widely employed in the execution of energy projects, as well as those used for trading execution in the wider energy markets.

Contemporaneous policy issues are also explored in great detail, underscoring the dynamic nature of the programme’s content.

Programme structure

Learning will primarily be through lectures, set reading, class discussions, exercises, group-work assignments, problem solving in tutorials and case studies. Assessment methods include examinations, assignments, presentations or continuous assessment.

Learning outcomes

By the conclusion of the programme, students should be able to:

demonstrate an advanced knowledge of key theoretical finance and economic concepts underpinning the operations in global and regional energy markets
demonstrate knowledge of how key regional and global energy markets (oil, gas, electricity etc) are structured and how they work
have in-depth understanding of the relationships existing among the key global energy markets; for example, how gas prices translate into less demand for coal and other energy commodities
conduct financial appraisal of energy projects within relevant regulatory contexts
trade energy commodities on global and regional markets’ exchanges/trading platforms by using state of the art software packages and harnessing the power of relevant real-time energy industry data
demonstrate an appreciation of the role played by global, regional and national policies in shaping the demand and supply of energy commodities, as well as relevant energy mixes
demonstrate an appreciation of the complex nature of global energy markets, especially the oil and gas markets, which incorporates supply from developing countries with varied market/operational structures
