MSc Corporate Social Responsibility and Energy

Mode of study
Full time – 1 year
Distance learning – 3 years
September start

More and more, scrutiny is placed upon impact the oil and gas industry has on the global economy, cultures and environment. Over the years, several high profile incidents have highlighted the difference between those who handle it well, and those who don’t. This course will give you the skills to handle, maintain and grow stakeholder relationships, whilst recognising and reconcile the competing demands of corporate policies and stakeholder interests.

Because the energy sector is one of the most global, profitable and controversial industries in the world, stakeholder demands for CSR strategies have been particularly prominent.
Ongoing disputes over community welfare associated with the extraction of oil and gas, the ramifications surrounding environmental incidents and competition for new supplies in politically fragile regions are vivid examples of the need to connect the principles of CSR with the business of developing and delivering energy products.

It’s an important facet of the 21st century oil and gas industry and one which needs to be handled in an expert way; this course gives you the skills to do so.
