Gloria Owusu - MSc Energy Management

Gloria Owusu
A mature student from Ghana has obtained a postgraduate degree from RGU in Aberdeen, widely known as the energy capital of Europe, in order to enhance her career in the industry.

“I was looking for an energy programme that would give me a holistic picture of the entire energy industry, not just fossil fuels or renewable energy, and that would let me appreciate where we are currently and the need to transition to an economy underpinned by zero to low carbon energy”, said Gloria Owusu.

“I needed an industry-focused programme that would provide me with the theoretical foundation, methodological expertise, and practical experience necessary to achieve my career goals. My search led me to MSc Energy Management at RGU and the modules did not disappoint at all.”

Coming from Ghana, Gloria was full of praise for what the degree entailed and how it was taught.

“I found out that the programme was industry-oriented, practical, and taught by industry experts. It is also accredited by the Energy Institute which gives students access to several resource materials, workshops, and connection to a large network of energy professionals. It has ultramodern learning facilities and offers study support services to help students meet their academic potential.

“I believe RGU’s teaching methods of combining lectures and tutorials are some of the best methods any student could find because they help you learn the theories and their applications in industry scenarios.

“The course also gave me free membership to the Energy Institute and access to a significant number of energy industry conferences which exposed me to the current happenings in the industry and networking opportunities with industry professionals.”

Crucial to her experience and opportunity at RGU’s Aberdeen Business School was the Chevening scholarship that sponsored her time, a UK Government international award scheme aimed at developing global leaders.

“My postgraduate journey at RGU has been interesting and fulfilling because I was able to achieve outstanding academic performance with straight A’s in all the course modules and my capstone, earning me two Dean of School Awards.

“Furthermore, I took the leadership role of class representative for my cohort which has helped me to improve my leadership skills and win the prestigious RGU Partnership Award, recognition for my outstanding contribution and commitment to the student learning experience through partnership with the University.

"These are unique and humbling aspects of my time at RGU which I believe will have a positive bearing on my career.”
