Description: Geopolitics of Energy builds on critical thinking developed in core courses such as Strategy, Finance and Ethics. The modules deal with historical themes, access to resources, operational issues occurring during the life of an investment, and decisions at the end of investment life (at expected maturity or prematurely). Scenario Planning is used - not to predict the future but to consider the viability of strategies under alternate future directions. The course uses the case method to a significant extent and deals with diverse regions and levels of economic development. Class participation, individual and group exercises account for grading.
