The Cass Business School in the City of London is part of the City University and is ranked among the global elite of business schools. Working closely with Cass, Channoil initiated the development of a Master of Science (M.Sc.) degree in Energy, Trade and Finance.
This one-year course prepares students in the field of corporate finance, commodity trading and shipping, and during the winter semester they undergo thorough training in oil and gas trading and economics. This latter module is delivered by Channoil staff and associates and includes a rigorous trading simulation exercise lasting three weeks. This course is now over twelve years old and past alumni have made successful careers with governments and major oil and trading companies for example BP, Shell, Total, Lukoil, TNK-BP, Vitol and Trafigura.
