Yes, I've just done it. Thanks.
But in LinkedInd Imperial BS has very few contacts, all they are in Imperial College. So that makes the comparison not so good.

That's not the case. If you search for MBAs who are Imperial alumni, there are 799, of whom 23 are at Imperial. Read more slowly.

I meant a bit different thing.
Almost all contacts in LinkedIn are from Imperial College, but not necessarily from Imperial BS, i.e. they could get MBA from other BS.

Yes, but that's also true at other universities. That noise in the data is pretty consistent, so the differences are still meaningful. Of course you can always get someone to review those profiles individually.

Hello all,

I know this could be a wrong forum. But I just want to start a dialogue.
I am an experienced drilling engineer in E&P companies. I wanted to do MBA right after my university bachelor. But I opted to work in e&p so as to get hands on my engineering. Now after 11 years, I feel I am in good situation financially and strategicaly, to go for MBA or MSc in oil and gas finance related courses. But I am confused whether to choose MBA or MSc. Both seems equally important.

Actually I have never seen lots MBA professionals in oil industry or I never had situation or position to interact with them. So I am not sure whether MBA course will help. I have met a few finance people and in friendship with them. So they suggested that MSc finance courses are good for business knowledge.

My objective is to finish education in MBA or MSc finance, return to e&p sector and change domain from wells department to finance or projects department. Ultimately I want to have my own business sooner or later and I want education to be able to achieve so.

So I need your help. 1. To choose MBA or MSc energy finance y. 2. If MBA, then to choose generic MBA or specialise MBA in oil and gas 3. What kind of jobs or departments i can expect after MBA. 4. Which university. I checked on QS and found that Edinburgh university is in top 30 as compared to RGU, Aberdeen in terms of ranking. But you are the best judge as you are doing course.

I am not very keen to live in UK after 11 years, I am ready to change location within a company after certain sitpulated time.

Regards,
Narendra Bande
