Second prize is a £5,000 scholarship towards tuition fees, third prize is a £2,500 scholarship, and all applicants that meet the entry criteria for the course will receive a £1,000 scholarship towards tuition fees.
Winners can choose to pursue the Executive Part-time MBA Oil and Gas Management course which is delivered at RGU’s Garthdee campus in Aberdeen, or the Online Distance Learning MBA Oil and Gas Management course, which can be studied from anywhere in the world.
Established in 1943, the EIC is the leading trade association for companies working in the energy industries around the world. As a not-for-profit organisation, the EIC’s aim is to help members maximise commercial opportunities worldwide.
