As the energy sector faces new challenges due to climate change and stiff competition from rival firms, the need for competent and informed management staff is crucial. This in turn, results in higher-than-average starting salaries for graduates moving into the sector.

Oil, Gas and Petroleum Management graduates will initially apply for an environmental consultant or research administrator positions.
