Strategic Planning for the Oil and Gas Industry

Managers often find it difficult to take a step back and look at their own industry in an objective manner. Strategic Planning for the Oil and Gas Industry aims to overcome this problem. The course articulates from the core Strategic Planning course, which must be studied before starting this specialist elective.

This course revolves around the global oil and gas industry supply chain, giving you an understanding of every part of the oil and gas industry. The core MBA Strategic Planning course developed the generic structure within which concepts and models are applied to analyse the strategic process of an organisation.

This industry-specific course is designed to enhance understanding of the concepts already presented by applying them to the oil and gas industry. It tackles industry-specific issues and their strategic implications. 

Students should emerge from the course with a better strategic understanding of the oil and gas industry as a whole, their own organisation and its place within the wider industry.
