You might also look at Aberdeen and Dundee, which have an MBA in Oil and Gas Management. In the US there are specialist MBAs or MBAs with relevant electives at Austin, Tulsa, Houston and Dallas. Have a look at the following discussion on Find MBA for help with a few ideas:

Most MBA courses are prepared to make something of a trade-off between scores and experience, though it varies from programme to programme. It's quite normal to ask for at least 3 years experience plus a good first degree, but it's always worth contacting the admissions tutor at each tutor to advise them of your individual circumstances. Also UK universities tend to relax their position on the formal qualifications necessary for people re-entering education after time out, especially mature students (ie. anyone over the age of 21). They normally try to encourage rather than discourage applicants, so if you can make your case convincingly - especially in such a specific area - you will probably stand a good chance wherever. Having had a look at it, the Aberdeen programme looks good. My advice would be to check out the webpages for the schools you're interested in (see, for example, the links at the bottom of this page), and contact the schools directly. They will be able to tell you better than I can what they do and don't require. It can be a lengthy process, but it's definitely worth it if you find the find the right programme.

Hope that helps,

Dear All
I need a lil help from u all. I am a bit confused as to which university should I join to do my MBA. I have scored just 540 on GMAT and more than 3 years of work exp. Professionally I am a CA and an advocate. I wish to go for MBA. I also have an offer from University of Strathclyde Business School, The Leeds Business School, Kent, Exeter, Greenich. Please suggest as to which is the best university out of those? The University of Strathclyde Business School is ranked as 30th by the FT. Is is the true representative of it being among the top 50 B-schools around the globe?

Please reply. Thanks in advance.

Hi,

Hmmm, tricky. I wouldn't want to say which is definitively better than one or another, though going by rankings alone (FT 2008 and Economist 2007) Leeds and Strathclyde are the front-runners. The Economist puts Leeds at 52 in the world and Strathclyde at 64. Although rankings aren't everything - you should investigate the specific modules and specialisms on offer and compare them with your individual interests and objectives - they are good place to start, and the FT and Economist's systems are as reliable as they come. I notice that Leeds is accredited by AMBA and EQUIS, while Strathclyde is accredited by AMBA, EQUIS and AACSB. So both are serious. Both demand fees of 18,500-19,000 for the year.

My advice, having looked closely at the specific courses on offer, would be your decision as much on which city - Glasgow or Leeds - you'd rather be in for a year. Have a look at the student feedback on the websites and do a bit of research on each city. My personal preference would be Glasgow - though the Glaswegian accent can be difficult if you're not already familiar with it.

Hi there,
Congratualtions for being accepted by Leeds and Strathclyde (and the others). It is not so bad finally if your problem is only a problem of choice!
I'd like to add another factor for taking the right decision: Compare the job prospects for both schools, which one will better fit your needs, ask for statistics, and check out the alumnis network.
