It is a three-month full-time programme that helps university graduate students to compete for jobs with international oil companies and help companies to find the right calibre candidates.
The programme includes classroom studies such as Communication skills, Emotional intelligence, IT, Business skills, teamwork and interview skills, project work, and field trips. In 202 2020, the Program was online for the first time, due to the pandemic but has returned to being face-to-face in 2021.
