best MBA School for Oil&Gas professionals

I have an international oil&gas experience and currently look for a MBA School in Europe in which Oil &Gas Companies are mostly interested. Do you know any European MBA School in which companies like Shell, BP, Chevron, ExxonMobil, Repsol, prefer to hire?

What about the top BS like Warwick, RSM, INSEAD, IMD or HEC? The point is that I''d like to keep involved in the oil& gas idustry after MBA and some BS are well known for being strong in IB, finance, amonght other subjects, but oil & gas companies usually prefer some BS over others.

Warwick has a part-time program called Global Energy MBA, however it's not really focused on oil and gas.
http://www.wbs.ac.uk/students/mba/global-energy/

I don't think HEC has any energy-related courses (please double check), but it may open doors at Total SA, which is headquartered in Paris as well.

Oil and gas companies like Insead. 10% of Insead MBAs are recruited by energy and petroleum companies (third largest sector): http://www.insead.edu/mba/meet_us/documents/MBA_2008_Employment_Statistics.pdf

Don't know about the other schools you mentioned.

Yes, I found out some oil&gas companies recruit at INSEAD (BP, Schlumberger) . Also, I review RSM in the Netherlands and some MBA graduates were being recruited by Shell and some others.
What about American BS?

Either RICE univ or UT-Austin.
But I'd prefer RICE univ because of it's location in Houston.

UT-austin has more global brand compared to RICE, but if you want to get a job in Houston,
Better stay near it.

Btw, I'm applying to both schools.

Try Robert Gorden University or University of Aberdeen. Both of these universities are located in Aberdeen (Scotland) which is an oil rich city and the job prospects out here (especially oil and gas sector) is very good.

There are many threads in this forum on the above two universities. Look around :)

These Energy management MBA reminds me of computer science degree craze in late 1990s
and financial engineering craze in early 2010.

Seems that Universities are in race to create energy-related degree to win students (read: Money).

Don't know whether it's a good or bad thing.

I would strongly suggest you to look at RSM. Shell is a top player and a top recruiter at RSM. Moreover, RSM is greatly involved into fields like energy, green technologies and so on as it was recently ranked 7th worldwide in this specific topic!!

I'd look at ESMT in Berlin. It is a b-school founded by 25 businesses including E.On
They've also got a generous scholarship package and are highly rated by the FT.

Considering the Exxon-Mobil is located just down the road from SMU Cox, you might want to consider Cox. Be sure to check out the Maguire Energy Institute. Cox also offers IPAA required continuing education classes for energy industry professionals.

Another option: BI Norwegian School of Management has an MSc in Energy Management. It has also become the first school in Norway to receive the EQUIS international accreditation.

The MBA in Energy Management from the Vienna University of Business and Economics already received the 2nd international accreditation within 1 year.
Now it has the EQUIS (http://www.efmd.org/index.php/accreditation-/equis) as well as AMBA accreditation (http://www.mbaworld.com/)

Univ. Texas at Austin, Rice Univ. and Texas A&M should also be considered for Oil&Gas concentration because they have geographical advantage having located in Texas (world capital of energy).

Too bad that there's no top100 MBA school in Saudi Arabia, if there were a good school there, one definitely need to consider studying there...
