I'm not sure why you are focussed on UK MBAs only. I used the approach at How to use LinkedIn to find the best school www.find-mba.com/board/33571 and the best full-time options seem to be:
- Imperial College London
- London Business School
- University of Cambridge.

I would also consider Warwick and Cranfield.

What are your specific career goals? If you want to work in the UK, get into the best school you can in the country. If you want to stay in oil & gas, the schools in Scotland are worth considering and I agree that Warwick and Cranfield could be good bets as well.

Otherwise, your school choice should reflect the location and the industry that you want to work in post-MBA. If you want to stay in the Middle East, study in the Middle East. There are some excellent MBA programs in Dubai and other places.

Thanks RMS.....Yes I do research thro this FT ranking only.
Thanks Duncan.....I read the whole thread. So I will do some study on that too.
Thanks Laurie.......My goals are to be in Project Management Oil & Gas and not to stay in UK for a long term. Just need a good & worth MBA study and few years of experience after MBA in UK and will return back to Middle east after getting a better job.
Warwick, Cranfield & Middle east business schools are out of my budget.

So if you have any better options please let me know.

If you work for a large firm the MBA apprenticeship route at Cranfield could be affordable.

With the schools in Scotland you'd have better access to the oil / gas firms there. Have you applied to any of the schools so far? Might be worth applying to 4-5 of them to see what kind of offers come through.
