The Programme Master in Management in the Oil, Natural Gas and Petrochemical Industry Includes a curriculum designed to generate competencies and master management processes in the Oil, Natural Gas and Petrochemical Industry, which are necessary to achieve a successful managerial and managerial performance of graduates in the dynamic and competitive area of ​​hydrocarbons In all its phases.

The first part of the program carries out an in-depth study of all hydrocarbon value chain activities such as exploration, exploitation, reservoirs, production, transportation, treatment, processing, distribution, refining and petrochemicals.

Next, the competences developed to lead the activities of conceptual engineering, basic engineering, detailed engineering of engineering projects in the areas of processes, mechanics, instrumentation, electricity, etc. are developed.

Then develop the knowledge and skills to carry out the activities of construction, mechanical, electrical, instrumental, pre-commissioning, commissioning, hazop and commissioning of hydrocarbon plants.

For the integral training, an emphasis is placed on the management, selection and application of codes (AAHTO, ACI, AGA, AISC, ANSI, API, ASME, ASTM, AWS, BSI, DNV, EEMUA, IEC, IEEE, ISA, ISO, MSS, NACE, NEMA, NFPA, SAMA, TEMA and UCB) and international standards with specific contents for the main global companies.

In the second part of the program of the Master in Management in the Oil, Natural Gas and Petrochemical Industry, it begins by touching important aspects to complete the integral training of the participants, starting with the integrated management systems in the specialties of safety, quality and medium environment.

The aspects of financial management, economy, corporate finance, management strategies, policies and managerial aspects of the hydrocarbon industry in the different countries of the participants are then deepened.

Competencies are also developed in the integral evaluation of the projects and specific risk analysis for this exciting area of ​​studies. The program presents the necessary characteristics to train professionals of integral and solid formation to perform successfully in this area with the current changes and also with the development of the new current trends.

Of particular importance are studies and development of legal, legal and contractual competencies in the hydrocarbon industry, analyzing the legal frameworks according to regions and countries to complement the assessment of investment opportunities in new projects.

Finally, case studies are carried out to analyze the strategies and policies of companies and countries, evaluating the technical, economic, financial, safety and environmental results and the image of companies as responsible citizens of the planet.
