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).
You’ll emerge from the MSc in Energy, Trade and Finance course fully equipped to operate effectively in the highly competitive international energy industry. You’ll gain a solid foundation in energy economics, markets and trading, and you will be able to formulate decisions for fossil fuels, electricity and renewables. Your studies will encompass energy transportation, especially seaborne, and will be rounded off with extensive study of finance and financial markets and essential and highly applicable quantitative, software and accounting skills. You can complement your core studies with elective modules or/and, if you wish, an independent research project.
The MSc in Energy, Trade and Finance is offered through The Costas Grammenos Centre for Shipping, Trade and Finance. The Centre is widely recognised and valued by practitioners and academics.
Since its launch in 1983, its three primary aims remain the same:
- Offer high-quality teaching in its three interlinked disciplines of shipping, trade and finance
- Produce high quality research in these areas
- 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 and risk management, and finance.
