    It takes skill, determination and, of course, specialist knowledge.

    Our specialist MBAs give you just that depth of understanding.

    This programme encompasses the same seven core courses of the standard MBA, but, instead of the two elective courses, you take four specialist courses in oil and gas management.

    This new MBA specialism will provide you with the cutting edge management skills that are needed by every successful manager to today’s competitive world, plus a detailed knowledge and expertise that is specifically relevant to the oil and gas industry.

    The specialism is based on a pioneering work done by Edinburgh Business School developing the content in close association with industry practitioners, and it has been extensively market tested. The ‘students’ will be experienced managers, or those aspiring to work in public or private oil and gas producers, service providers and specialist engineering organisations.

    You work towards your MBA on a course-by-course basis. After completing three courses, you are eligible for a Postgraduate Certificate in Business Administration, and after six courses for a Postgraduate Diploma in Business Administration.

  • MSc. Human Resource Management

     

                  

     

    Built around the key roles of Human Resource Management, this programme will help develop the HR Manager’s strategic, functional and personal skills.

    Ask any organisation to identify the key to their success and they’ll say “our people”, but for those people to perform at their best, they need to work in an atmosphere in which they feel valued and rewarded. The HR professional is one of the keys to delivering just that.

    This programme will enable managers, whatever their present level of experience, to develop the strategic, functional and personal skills they need to meet the increasingly demanding roles of HR. The programme also addresses the increasingly important interfaces between HR and other key business functions, including marketing and communications, information and communications technologies and knowledge management.

    The areas of study include the HR function as a strategic partner, change agent, administrative expert and employee champion. It also addresses the interface between HR and other key business functions. Graduates of the MSc will come away with invaluable insights, increased understanding and new knowledge.
