In terms of these schools, one accreditation is fine, and another wouldn't actually add any incremental value.

In any case, if I were you I would narrow it down by your career goals and geographic preference. Obviously Leicester is relatively close to London, and I'd imagine if you went there you could take advantage of the proximity to network, etc.

RGU is the go-to for oil and gas MBA programs in the UK, so if that's interesting to you maybe you should look more closely at that one.

I have only spoken to a few Leicester DL students but none of them had a good experience. It's only a few people, but please do be careful.

Ducan: Have you received good feedback about RGU (its also single accredited)?

There's no *bad* feedback about it. Clearly the limits of the programme is clear: it's got a leading niche in oil and gas but it's not a prestigious university without the sort of benefits that you'd get from a better school.

RGU has a very good reputation within the oil and gas industry here in Aberdeen, I can't comment first-hand on how it's viewed internationally though.

The current full-time Oil & Gas MBA class has individuals who came from the US, Canada, Russia and Qatar (amongst others) who all work in the industry.

Hi all,

I am interested in doing MBA. But not sure whether to do it in rgu or university of Edinburgh.
I am working in oilfield for 11 years as drilling engineer. I feel it is time to change to new domain. So I wish to do MBA.
I checked online about BP , shell, MBA graduate programs. But I am not sure which universities do they prefer. My objective is to finish the course in one year and return back to oil and gas in new domain best case or wells department as senior worst case.
Can anyone guide me.
Regards,
Narendra

Generally most students will be better off at the University of Edinburgh, which is a rich and old university with a top business school. However, RGU is in the key city of oil and probably has better connections into the industry. Try this: How to use LinkedIn to find the best school www.find-mba.com/board/33571
